Ministers for Foreign Affairs from African countries and their counterparts from Nordic countries will meet in Tanzania’s commercial capital Dar es Salaam on Nov. 8 to discuss various issues, including investment opportunities, an official said on Friday.

The meeting, the first ever to be held in Tanzania, will attract 29 foreign affairs ministers from African countries and their counterparts from Nordic countries of Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Iceland, said Faraja Mnyepe, Tanzania’s Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation.

He said the meeting will also discuss trade, peace and security in the African and Nordic regions.

“The ministers are also scheduled to deliberate on crosscutting issues like climate change and development partnership among individual countries,” Mnyepe told a news conference in Dar es Salaam.

“Following significant development achievements recorded by Tanzania’s 5th phase government, our Nordic counterparts would like to hear the Tanzania experience in various sectors.” He added.

The official said Tanzania has made tremendous achievements in health, education, energy, infrastructure, agriculture, tourism, tax collection, anti-corruption, anti-poaching and the fight against illicit drugs.

He said at least 250 delegates are expected to attend the meeting. Enditem
