Tripartite ‘growth pole’ diagnostic reports: potentials and prospects for minerals-based industrialisation
12 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Pretoria:  Since its establishment in 2009, Trade Mark Southern Africa (TMSA) has supported the Tripartite of the Common Market of Eastern and Southern Africa, the Southern African Development Community and the East African Community, in developing and implementing its regional integration agenda.  This involves supporting the design and planned implementation of the Tripartite Free Trade Area, improving the economic competitiveness of the region and reducing costs of cross-border transactions through a transport corridor approach addressing both trade facilitation issues and infrastructure constraints. Focused industrial development is essential in the COMESA-EAC-SADC Tripartite region to fundamentally change the economy and to promote high yield sectors. Such development brings not only an improvement in the GDP and job provision, but promotes knowledge accumulation and technological sophistication that have far reaching benefits for the economy.  This research was conducted under the topic “Tripartite ‘Growth Pole’ Diagnostic Reports: Analysis of Potentials and Prospects for Minerals-Based Industrialisation.”

Kenya targets Dar cargo with Taveta border crossing
6 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Nairobi: Kenya is betting on a new border post and the planned Mwatate-Taveta road to boost its share of cargo traffic even as concern grows over delay in signing a bilateral pact with Tanzania. Officials say the completion of the Sh500 million Taveta one-stop border post (OSBP) and construction of the road joining central Tanzania will significantly change the region’s trade dynamics in favour of Kenya as more cargo reverts to Mombasa Port and the Northern Corridor. “Once projects are complete, traders will have more choice with some of the Burundi-bound cargo, for instance, coming to Mombasa and leaving through the Northern Corridor,” Theo Lyimo, an OSBP director at TradeMark East Africa, said in Nairobi.

Tanzania: Small miners, lumberjacks to face revenue disclosure rule
6 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Dar es Salaam:  Small scale miners as well lumberjacks and others in the forestry sector may soon be required to make their revenue public to help the government determine appropriate taxes for the sector.  Noting that the government expects the mining sector to contribute at least 10 percent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 2025, Tanzania Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (TEITI) Board Chairman Judge Mark Bomani supported the government move saying it will lead to the targeted goal. Speaking at the opening of a regional training workshop on EITI Standards for Anglophone and Lushophone African countries in Dar es Salaam yesterday, Justice Bomani said accounting for small scale miners’ revenue is a challenge. “The group is not registered and operates without audited books,” he said.  “We don’t know their revenues at all,” he added.

5 March 2014, 12:00 pm

4 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Dar es Salaam:  During 2013, overall balance of payments recorded a surplus of USD 498.4 million compared to a surplus of 326.1 million registered in the preceding year.
