PM Majaliwa made the remarks yesterday when he launched the royal tour in Dodoma, saying the documentary is expected to attract more tourists to the country.

He called upon Tanzanians to support efforts by President Samia to promote Tanzania’s tourist destinations, saying regional commissioners and other local government leaders should emulate what the head of State was doing.

He said the act of President Samia Suluhu Hassan to fly above Mount Kilimanjaro has been special and attractive signifying the exact place where the mountain is found.

On the opportunities found in Dodoma, PM Majaliwa cited production of wine, construction of the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) and a place for preparation of freedom fighters for southern African countries.

“The implementation of the projects will give Dodoma residents places to rest; therefore I call upon investors to invest in Dodoma which is the country’s capital.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Sports, Arts and Culture Dr Hassan Abbas said the film has been viewed by a large number of people globally saying there are expectations that more tourists will come into the country.

He said the Royal Tour was an opportunity to market Tanzania in which the president has met various investors and owners of big companies who have shown interests.

Earlier, Dodoma Regional Commissioner, Anthony Mtaka said the regional bus stand which is built at a strategic position is set to become the country’s tourism hub due to its historical background.
