 ZANZIBAR President Dr Hussein Mwinyi has re-assured Women engineers in the country that isles and Union governments will continue to recognize their contributions to the national development.

“We appreciate the work you are doing. We believe that through such meetings where you share experiences and hard work, you play a significant role in supporting the governments’ efforts to encourage innovations and engineers to boost our nation’s development,” Dr Mwinyi said.

The message was contained in his short speech at the opening of the 8th Tanzania Women Engineers Convention and Exhibitions (TAWECE) held here yesterday.

“You planned well because this is a creative exhibition that is likely to encourage female students in colleges and secondary schools to love engineering profession. You should encourage girls to love subjects that will lead them to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM),” he said.

Dr Mwinyi said that  to date statistics show that there is  still  a few women in engineering and other science professions, “I am glad to see students from secondary schools have come to visit the exhibition and conference presentations that aimed at educating and capacity building of participants including young people.”

“The Power of Diversity and Inclusion in Engineering Workforce, ‘Women Perspectives” is this year’s theme, which the Isles president commended the conference organizers for choosing it as it promotes collaboration among Women in different Engineering Careers.

He further promised that both governments have been working closely to engage women in a variety of activities create an enabling environment for self-employment, access available opportunities, and support in improving education and skills; and also have a budget for research and innovations.

“We need to continue working together to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially empowering women and girls to become scientists including the field of engineering because science and engineering is the backbone of most economic activities,” he said.

Dr Mwinyi commended both Ministries responsible for infrastructure, construction and transport in Zanzibar and Mainland to support female graduate engineers to have field or practical training to qualify to be registered as professional engineers through the Structured Engineers Apprenticeship Program (SEAP) administered by the Engineers Registration Board.

The Isles minister of Infrastructure, Communication and Transport Dr Khalid Salum Mohamed praised the ongoing work done by engineers including female engineers, of various fields in building road infrastructure, the construction of regional and district hospitals as well as various schools in Zanzibar.
