The Business Promotion Platform provides a setting where business opportunities in Tanzania can be presented to the Dutch public and private sector.

We would like to thank all the participants for their attendance and contribution. A special word of gratitude goes out to the Tanzanian Delegation and Minister who flew in for this notable occasion, and to Mr. Frans Engering. Without our stakeholders, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, SHELL and Dutch speakers from Rabobank International and RijkZwaan, this Forum could never have been possible.
