MoU for Poultry and Aquaculture strengthens the cooperation between Tanzania and the Netherlands

The Vice Minister of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality from the Netherlands, Ms. Marjolijn Sonnema arrived in Tanzania to start a three day visit to strengthen the cooperation between the two countries in the areas of sustainable agriculture, livestock and fisheries and circular economy. On 10 July 2019, Vice Minister Marjolijn Sonnema and Deputy Minister for Livestock and Fisheries Hon. Abdallah Hamisi Ulega signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

The aim of the MoU is to develop robust and competitive aquaculture and poultry value chains, with a focus on facilitating the sustainable development of the private sector and technology transfer.

The Netherlands will provide expertise for Tanzanian aquaculture and poultry farmers to help them improve their yields and to support the sustainable development of the sectors.

The relationship between Tanzania and the Netherlands already lasts for 40 years. This signing is a great step to prolonging and deepening this relationship even further. For more information on the visit of Vice Minister Sonnema to Tanzania, please click here.
