Makamba asks for support from retired envoys

DAR ES SALAAM: THE Minister for Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation, January Makamba, has urged retired ambassadors in the country to continue utilising their knowledge and experience gained during their service to help leaders in building the nation.

In his address on Monday at the annual meeting of the Tanzania Retired Ambassadors’ Association, Minister Makamba emphasised the invaluable role retired ambassadors can play in nationbuilding.

He urged retired envoys to share their wealth of knowledge with current leaders, emphasising the enduring importance of diplomacy even after retirement.

“The wealth of knowledge accumulated during diplomatic service becomes more important for sharing upon retirement, Thus, we still need the knowledge that you have gained throughout the period,” expressed Mr Makamba.

Minister Makamba further highlighted the significance of the experience and insights gained by retired ambassadors during their service, noting that their experience could greatly benefit current leadership in advancing national interests.

Acknowledging the ongoing cooperation received by retired ambassadors from the ministry, he assured them of continued support and emphasised the importance of their continued contribution to the development of the nation.

Moreover, the minister underscored the need for the seamless transfer of knowledge and experiences from retired ambassadors to current leaders for the collective advancement of the country.

He reiterated his commitment to fostering collaboration with retired ambassadors, highlighting the shared goal of utilising their knowledge to hasten the nation’s progress.

Minister Makamba’s calls to action resonated with the retirees, who expressed gratitude for the opportunity to continue serving the nation through knowledge sharing and mentorship initiatives.

Recently, Minister Makamba revealed that Tanzania has made commendable strides in economic diplomacy, with the East African nation earning 5.6 billion US dollars in investments in 2023, up from 1 billion US dollars in 2021.

He made the revelation when reflecting on President Samia Suluhu Hassan’s three years in office.

Speaking at his office in Dar es Salaam, Mr Makamba highlighted President Samia’s commendable efforts in enhancing bilateral relations with nations and multinational corporations, which have resulted in positive outcomes for the country.

“Through the President’s tours abroad we have been able to solicit development funds, in terms of loans and aids for bankrolling our strategic development projects,” said the minister.

Statistics show that in 2023, the Tanzania Investment Centre registered 504 projects worth 5.6 billion US dollars, a 58 per cent increase compared to the 292 projects registered in 2022.

Giving his verdict on the performance of the country’s envoys abroad, Minister Makamba said; “Our ambassadors are performing well but there is a room for improvement.”

He said the ministry has organised a meeting that will bring together all 49 ambassadors representing the country abroad next month in Dar es Salaam.

“The government will continue to develop and empower our embassies to ensure they execute their tasks there efficiently and effectively, especially in the area of economic diplomacy,” he assured.

Minister Makamba praised President Samia for flying high the country’s flag in the global arena, saying the Head of State, whom he referred to as the number one diplomat, has opened up the country and restored Tanzania’s influential position in international affairs.

“I anticipate greater diplomatic achievements in the future under President Samia’s leadership, as we are seeing a return to the Tanzania that we are familiar with in terms of international and foreign affairs,” he stated.
