The Minister for Education and Vocational Training, Prof. Jumanne Maghembe has challenged Tanzanians to deliver and be faithful in jobs to remove the excuse of some firms preferring to employ foreigners.
The Minister threw the challenge in Dar es Salaam yesterday when inaugurating the Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) dialogue that brought together "Government, Private Sector and Business School" representatives drawn from within the country and facilitators from the United States of America and The Netherlands.
Prof. Maghembe cited a case where a Tanzanian was employed as an engineer at an expatriate equivalent monthly pay but lost the job upon proven evidence that he was engaged in sabotaging the employer through theft although he delivered on the professional front.
On improving business environment in the country, Minister Maghembe reiterated the need to create a conducive environment by removing uncalled for bottlenecks and subsequent delays.
Earlier, the TPSF Chairperson Esther Mkwizu said one of the components of a “Private Sector Competitiveness Project (PSCP), a World Bank funded project supporting private sector enterprises in Tanzania was to implement the Business Schools Linkage Program (BSLP) which aimed at assisting business schools to deliver world-class management in Tanzania”
