The best Swedish Delegation to Tanzania that we have had to date - Embassy of Sweden in Tanzania
YET ANOTHER SSACC TRADE MISSION SUCCESS!
The Trade Mission consisted of ABB, Voith Hydro, Swedbank, DeLaval, Wedholms, LFV Aviation, Jos Hansen and Ambassador Bengt Carlsson from the Africa Department at the Swedish MFA.
The Trade Mission arrived in Dar es Salaam on the 8th of October and on the 9th SSACC in partnership with the Embassy of Sweden and the Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (TCCIA) hosted a Business Seminar at the Best Western Coral Beach Hotel. The seminar had a fantastic turn out, with over 80 people attending the event, including PS for the Ministry of Trade and Industry, Prof. Buchweishaija, the Director Generals of TANESCO and Tanzania Investment Centre, among other Government and business leaders from both countries. We were also especially grateful to have the Tanzanian Ambassador to Sweden, Dr. Slaa, join us for the full duration of the program in Dar es Salaam.
The Seminar was followed by an excellent cocktail mingle, allowing for the Delegates to network further with local businesses, deepen contacts made during the Seminar and also book additional B2B meetings.
The 10th and 11th of October were set aside for B2B meeting. Delegates provide SSACC before hand with detailed information on what they would like to accomplish from the trip and a wishlist of companies, organisations and government entities they would like to meet. On average the Delegates had 10 meetings booked spread between the two days, which included meetings with the Tanzania Central Bank, Ministries of Trade, Energy, Finance, Infrastructure and TANESCO.
A dinner was organised at the Swedish residence to further provide opportunities for strategic contact creation at a very high level, exchange of knowledge and experience of doing business in Tanzania and the opportunity to market Swedish solutions.
The Trade Mission received national wide media coverage, highlighting the strong historical relationship between Tanzania and Sweden and a positive outlook on the business relationship between Swedish and Tanzanian companies.
We are very grateful for the collaboration we have had with the Embassy of Tanzania in Sweden, the Embassy of Sweden in Tanzania, TCCIA and the Tanzania Ministry of Foreign Affairs through our partnership with Ambassador Dr. Slaa. We look forward to deepening this collaboration with more activities in promoting trade and investment between Sweden and Tanzania.
