After a successful trip to Kenya in 2015 with our client The State Ministry of Rhineland-Palatinate for Economic Affairs, Traffic, Agriculture and Viniculture, africon had this year the pleasure to organize a business delegation to Tanzania.
Nine companies from various industrial sectors participated in the three-day trip to Dar es Salaam in order to get to know the general business environment and explore the potential for their own products and services.
The africon- team consisting of Lena Schwoerer and Aneth Herman organized an excellent program with 51 personal meetings for the delegates with individually and carefully selected potential clients and partners for the participating companies among which we had a wine exporter, different machine manufacturers as well as producers of feed additives, tools and special chemicals.
During the trip, it was a special honor for the business delegation to be received by Mr Mohammed Dewji, the Group CEO and president of the MeTL Group which is Tanzania’s largest homegrown company with revenues of more than $1.5 billion, employing more than 24,000 people and with a presence in 12 countries in Africa.
To make the program round we created also some space for networking with other German companies and institutions already present in Tanzania, for example during a visit to the company Achelis (Tanzania) Ltd. and the dinner reception of the Deputy Head of Mission of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany which supported us together with the Tanzanian German Business Center during the trip.
The feedback of all companies as well as our client, The State Ministry, was very positive and we could once again prove how our excellent business expertise and understanding of the local markets together with a hands-on-approach and professional organization on the ground can bring added-value to German companies.
