A business forum between Tanzanian and Burundi was held on 30 September 2017, to discuss a number of factors that can help to increase trade between the two countries.
Burundi and Tanzania aim to improve trade opportunities between them. After a trade fair that was organized as a follow up to the meeting of the two Heads of State, a business forum has taken place this Saturday 30 September.
Jean Bosco Ntunzwenimana, Minister of Transport, Public Works and Equipment, says Burundi is already gaining more from the improvement of the relationship between the two countries: "We were not allowed to use Dar es Salaam port ten years ago but now we are using it. There is a 40% reduction on the cost of goods imported while using road transport".
