Stronger ties with US is the way forward

Stronger ties with US is the way forward

SINCE she became President last year, President Samia Suluhu Hassan has maintained the need to open up the country and build good relations with other countries for benefits of all.

The Head of State is now in the United States (US) where she met with the US Vice-President, Harris Kamala in Washington, and both leaders pledged stronger tie between the two nations.

President Samia’s visit to the US has already generated nearly one billion US dollars (2.3tri/-) in new investments to Tanzania.  This was revealed by Kamala on Friday when she met with President Samia at the White House.

The Act is expected to set the tone for creating safe landing for private sector.  The US government should tap the opportunity by encouraging the private sector to come to Tanzania since there is a lot of potential.

For long time, the US has been in continued support of Tanzania on health and social economic development in uplifting the lives of many Tanzanians and there is no doubt after the pledge for stronger ties, it will continue to do so and its private sector invest in Tanzania.

Bilateral agreements increase trade between two countries. They open markets to successful industries. As companies benefit, they add jobs. The country's consumers also benefit from lower costs.

We need to stick to code of ethics  and conduct for public service
