Kikwete: Our education among world’s best

PRESIDENT Jakaya Kikwete hands over to his son, Khalfan, a lifetime entry permit to the national parks as a special award presented to him by the Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, Mr Lazaro Nyalandu (left), in appreciation and recognition of his role in promoting and strengthening the tourism industry in the country and his frequent visit to the national parks. The presentation was made at a ceremony to launch the Tourism Advertising Campaign via CNN Television station and BBC in Dar es Salaam on Friday.

Addressing the 8th Tanzania National Business Council (TNBC) in Dar es Salaam, Mr Kikwete said the problem lies on the fact that many graduates do not get required skills needed by markets in and outside the country.

“Our education system produces people of an international repute who can work anywhere in the world, what is needed now is to give them skills required by modern labour markets,” Mr Kikwete, who is also the TNBC Chairperson, told members of the public and private sectors during the meeting.

Statistics shows that between 800,000 and 1,000,000 youth enter the labour market in Tanzania annually while the country produces not more than 60,000 jobs and approximately 300,000 jobs in the public and private sectors respectively.

The president noted that the government strives to create conducive business and investment climate for investors and asked every individual, companies and institutions in the country to utilise available resources to produce and increase employment opportunities.

He asked everybody eligible to pay tax to do so and emphasised that “the government will not tolerate tax evaders.” Giving an example, he said if stakeholders from airline industry feel that they are highly taxed the best approach for them is to talk to Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) and agree instead of deciding to evade tax.

President Kikwete also asked the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) to work hard and professionally curb corruption in the country.

“When you go to court and lose cases now and then, fighting corruption will be difficult,” he noted.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, Dr Adelhelm Meru, said there was a need to continue fighting poachers in the country to strengthen tourism sector.

To implement that, he said, equipment and human resources will be increased especially in Serengeti and Ruaha national parks.

Dr Meru urged citizens to immediately stop taking their livestock into the national parks, stressing that the government will not accept such practice.
