ATTEND CTI SUB-SECTOR MEETINGS IN 2020

SUBJECT: INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN STRATEGIC MEETINGS FOR YOUR SUB-  SECTOR.

Dear Member,

In the pursuit of its mandate and responsibilities, the Confederation of Tanzania Industries (CTI) is seeking inputs on key issues affecting its members. The objective is to enable the Secretariat to collect challenges affecting your business with a view to engaging with the Government in order to find the solution to the problems. Due to the broad nature and composition, the CTI membership base comprises of entities with varied challenges and requirement, with each manufacturing sub-sector having unique challenges and policy issues.

In that regard, CTI is organising meetings with all members based on their sub-sectors. These meetings are scheduled to be held within the first quarter of the year to enable the Secretariat enough time to strategise on advocacy efforts to be undertaken.

The Secretariat will meet the members at the CTI Council Room, NIC Investment House 9th Floor. As indicated above, the meetings will be scheduled on the sub-sectoral basis and will be conducted twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays for one hour and a half from 10.00 AM to 11.30 AM. The focus will be on identifying key challenges affecting the sub-sector and specific proposals to mitigate them for advocacy purposes. The programme for the meetings is as provided below:
