GS1 TANZANIA WAMESAINI MKATABA WA MAKUBALIANO NA TBS‏

Mkutano ulifanyika katika ofisi ya TIRDO ambayo ni Taasisi tanzu ya Wizara ya Viwanda na biashara, ambapo kulishuhudiwa utiwaji saini wa makubaliano kati ya GS1 Tanzania na Shirika la Viwango Tanzania (TBS) katika kushirikiana kufanya kazi pamoja na kujenga mahusiano ambayo ni muhimu haswa kwa wazalishaji wa Tanzania kwani alama ya utambuzi wa bidhaa kwa sasa zinahitajika katika masoko yote ya ndani na nje ya nchi.

TBS imekua ikishirikiana na GS1 Tanzania katika uelimishaji wajasiliamali ambayo mafunzo kadhaa kati ya Taasisi hizi mbili yameshafanyika huko mkoani.

Wazalishaji wa Tanzania wanaotumia Barcode za nje ya nchi wanaaswa kubadilisha na kutumia Barcode(alama za uzalishaji) za hapa nchini kwani itasaidia::

  • Kupunguza matumizi ya fedha za kigeni ambazo zingetumika kulipia huduma hiyo.
  • Kutupa takwimu rasmi za wazalishaji kwani kutumia barcode za nje ya nchi bidhaa inaonekana imetoka kwenye nchi nyingine na sio Tanzania.
  • Kuwepo kwa utambulisho kwa bidhaa za Tanzania kwani nambari tatu za mwanzo za Barcode zinaonyesha bidhaa zinatoka nchi gani, ambapo kwa bidhaa za Tanzania utambulisho wetu ni 620.
  • Mwisho ni suala zima la uzalendo, tujivunie cha kwetu.

Kuna wazalishaji wa Tanzania 13 tu ambao wamechukua alama za uzalishaji (barcode), sio tu wameonesha uzalendo bali wameendana na matakwa ya masoko yaliyo rasmi ya ndani na nje ya nchi. Huduma hii kama umekamilisha matakwa yote unaipata ndani ya siku moja tu.

GS1 Tanzania inahudumia nchi zaidi ya tano ambazo hazina huduma hii nazo ni Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Zambia, Malawi na Mozambique.

Kampuni ya Statoil Tanzania ina furaha kutangaza majina ya vijana watano waliongia fainali za shindano la biashara la mashujaa wa kesho ambalo lina dhumuni la kuhamasisha ujasiriamali kwa mikoa ya kusini mwa Tanzania yaani Mtwara na Lindi.

Shindano la Mashujaa wa Kesho lilihusisha vijana wenye umri kati ya miaka 18 na 25 kutoka mikoa ya Mtwara na Lindi kuwasilisha mawazo yao ya biashara ambayo baadae yalibadilishwa na kuwekwa kwenye andiko la biashara.

Mwaka huu shindano hili lilivutia vijana zaidi ya 400 ambao waliwasilisha mawazo ya biashara zao zinazolenga sekta mbalimbali za uchumi kama kilimo, ufugaji, mawasiliano, na biashara nyingine ndogondogo. Vijana waliruhusiwa kushiriki mmoja mmoja au hata kuunda vikundi vya watu wawili mpaka watatu.

Mwazo bora yaliyopatikana kati ya 400 yalikuwa 60 na wamiliki wa mawazo hayo ambao ni zaidi ya vijana 80 kutoka Lindi na Mtwara walipewa mafunzo maalum ya kuandaa andiko la biashara ambapo yalishindanishwa tena na kupatikana vijana kumi bora waliopelekwa mbele ya majaji ambao wiki hii walichagua maandiko matano bora kati ya kumi waliyopokea.

“Vijana hawa watano watawasili jijini Dar es Salaam wiki ijayo ili kuja kutetea maandiko yao ya biashara mbele ya jopo la majaji ambao mwisho wake wataamua nani anafaa kuwa mshindi wa shindano letu,” alisema Bwana Mchome.

Mshindi wa shindano hili atatangazwa siku ya Ijumaa tarehe 15 Aprili jijini Dar es Salaam katika hafla maalum iliyoandaliwa na Statoil ili kumpongeza mshindi huyo na wenzake wanne ambao wamefanikiwa kuingia fainali.

Washindi wengine watano waliofanikiwa kuingia kumi bora watapata dola 1,000.

“Statoil inaamini katika kuwawezesha vijana wenye vipaji katika maeneo yote ambayo tunafanya shughuli zetu na kwa kufanya hivi tunachochea maendeleo katika maeneo hayo ambayo nasi ni sehemu yake kwani tunafanya shughuli zetu za uendelezaji wa nishati kama gesi na mafuta.,” amesema Meneja Mkazi wa Statoil Tanzania, Øystein Michelsen.

TIC hailed for being shining example in Africa‏

TANZANIA Investment Centre (TIC) has been hailed for promoting investment in industries leading to development of a diversified and robust manufacturing sector.

SADC Investment Promotion Agency officers, who were in the country last week commended the investment centre for particularly promoting investments in industries that use modern technology to boost productivity.

In their visit to Serengeti Breweries Limited and Bakhresa after their two-day meeting, the officers said Tanzania had made important strides in attracting investments which use modern technology in food and beverage sectors which has made Tanzania as an exemplary country in sub-saharan Africa.

At Serengeti they saw modern production technology in brewing process where the General Manager, Helen Weesie, said Serengeti focused on quality and safety.

Serengeti Breweries Ltd (SBL) operates exclusively in Tanzania and is the 2nd largest beer company with a market share of about 25 per cent.

At Bakhresa industries, they were amused with the state-of-the-art of the factories in food and beverages and some were heard complaining why did the local investor, Said Salim Bakhersa choose to invest in a few countries only after they were told it had opened investmements in Malawi, Zambia, Rwanda and DR Congo.

They said such a successful investor, should be encouraged to invest in all SADC region.

Chief Executive Officer of Bakhresa industries, Mr Salim Aziz, hailed TIC for facilitating establishment of Bakhresa industries through investment incentives which have enabled Bakhresa investments in industries to become a success story.

TIC Investment Promotion Officer, Ms Lilian Mwamdanga, said the objective of the tour was to show SADC officials what Tanzania has accomplished so that they can learn and exchange experience.

She said it would reach time where TIC officials would travel to other SADC member countries to learn about their experiences in promotion of investments.

The Deputy Director for Industries in the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Dr John Mboya, said the two-day meeting was successful where SADC member states were so much attracted by investment promotion by TIC.

Tanzania is among top earners of foreign direct investments in the sub-Saharan Africa.

WADAU WAAANZA KUJENGA UELEWA KUHUSU SIKU YA MAGONJWA YANAYOTOKEA KWA KUNDI DOGO LA JAMII

Wadau hao wakinyoosha mikono juu kuonesha umuhimu wa kuadhimishwa kwa siku hiyo ya Magonjwa Yanayotokea kwa kundi dogo la jamii ndani ya jamii.

Mratibu wa tukio hilo Bibi Sharifa Mbaraka akizungumza mbele ya Waandishi wa habari (hawapo pichani) kwenye moja ya ukumbi wa hoteli ya Serena leo jijini Dar,Bi.Sharifa alisema kuwa tukio hilo limedhamiria kujumuisha  vyombo vya habari na wadau wengine ili kujenga uelewa kuhusu magonjwa hayo. 
“Yapo magonjwa tofauti yanayowasibu watu wachache takribani 7000 ambayo yameshabainishwa duniani hadi leo na Tanzania haiwezi kujitoa kwenye  hili. Hata hivyo watu wengi hapa Tanzania hawana uelewa  kuhusu magonjwa hayo”,alisema Bi Sharifa ambaye watoto wake wawili Ali Mohammed Kimara 5, na Nasreem Mohammed 3, wanasumbuliwa na magonjwa hayo.
Alifafanua kuwa kutokana na uzoefu wake, amepata msukumo  na kuamua kuwaunganisha wazazi, wagonjwa walio na magonjwa hayo na raia wenye mapenzi mema ili kujenga uelewa muhimu na kutoa wito kwa jamii kuchukua hatua.


Pichani wa pili kulia ni Mdau mkubwa wa sekta ya afya Monica Joseph kutoka Philips Medical Systems , akifafanua zaidi kuhusiana na huadhimishwa kwa Siku ya ‘Rare Disease’ Duniani ambayo inaadhimishwa leo.Monica amesema kuwa ni wakati mwafaka kwa Watanzania kuwa na tahadhari ya kuelewa kuhusu magonjwa hayo ili wanajamii waweze kufahamu mbinu za kuyadhibiti iwapo watayakuta ndani ya jamii. pichani kulia ni Dkt.Mariam Nooram kutoka hospital ya Aghakhan.

Kauli mbiu ya Siku ya Magonjwa yanayotokea kwa kundi dogo la wanajamii ambayo ni, “Ungana nasi kuzifanya sauti za waathirika zisikike” ikitaka jamii kwa jumla, wale wanaishi bila magonjwa hayo au wanaothirika nayo moja kwa moja kuungana na jamii ya waathirika katika kuelewa athari za magonjwa hayo. Watu wanaoishi na magonjwa hayo na familia zao mara kadhaa hutengwa. Jamii inaweza kuwaunganisha kutoka kwenye kutengwa huko. 

Lengo la jumla la Siku ya Magonjwa yanayotokea kwa kundi dogo la jamii ni kuhamasisha uelewa miongoni wa umma kwa jumla kuhusu magonwa hayo na athari zake kwa maisha ya wagonjwa ili kuyapa kipaumbele kwenye afya ya jamii ya Tanzania na kwenye bajeti ya serikali kupitia Wizara husika.

Central Bank sets 80 pc financial inclusion target

Bank_of_Tanzania_golden_hour
THE Bank of Tanzania (BoT) has set new targets of achieving usage of formal financial services under the National Financial Inclusion Framework (NFIF 2014/17) of having 80 per cent of adult population using a financial access point.

The Monetary Statement of the first half of the 2015/16 fiscal year also shows that BoT is targeting to have at least 70 per cent of the population living within five kilometres of a financial access point by 2017.

The new development follows the country’s outstanding performance in the usage of formal financial services among the un-banked population that surpassed its initial target by 50 per cent of adult population in 2014.

According to the BoT report, the increase in access and usage of formal financial services has been driven mostly by innovation and technology in the financial sector, particularly the use of mobile phones for accessing financial services.

The digital technology has made Tanzania one of the global hot spots of innovative financial services. By the end of December 2015, the number of registered active users of mobile phone financial services was 19 million.

Similarly, the other driving force was the enhancement of legal and regulatory framework for the National Payment Systems achieved with the National Payment Systems Act 2015 that became operational in October 2015.

Subsequently, two regulations were operationalized, namely, the Licensing and Approval Regulations 2015 and the Electronic Money Issuance Regulations 2015.

Furthermore, the Bank has embarked on awareness initiatives to ensure that the stakeholders are complying with the new requirements by the end of April 2016.

The other major development reached was for the Bank embarking on modernization initiatives of High Value Payment Systems (TISS) and improvements on retail payment infrastructures and services.

The Bank is also in the process of operationalizing new NPS regulatory framework following the enactment of the NPS Act 2015 and subsequent Regulations on Electronic Money Issuance regulations (2015) and NPS Licensing and Approval regulations (2015).
