The Tanzania Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA) Council of Ministers says Zambia and Tanzania urgently need to come up with a common position regarding China’s Interest to invest in the revitalization of TAZARA.
Co-Chair of the TAZARA Council of Ministers, Makeme Mbarawa has proposed that the two countries meet and come up with a position before the end of March, 2023.
Professor Mbarawa, who is also Tanzanian Minister of Works and Transport, says the two countries must move fast and come up with solutions as TAZARA is limping.
Professor Mbarawa said this during the TAZARA Council of Ministers in Lusaka today.
Speaking during the same meeting, Transport and Logistics Minister Frank Tayali said TAZARA is a critical asset which can contribute to economic growth of the two countries.
Mr. Tayali says TAZARA should immediately enhance stakeholder and customer experience as the two Governments work to turnaround its operations.
