The call was made by the Prime Minister, Kassim Majaliwa on Saturday when inaugurating Mpanda Plaza Business Complex built by the National Housing Corporation (NHC) at a cost of 2.8bn/-
“If you are a farmer cultivate hard, if you are a public servant do you work energetically, and those in factories do the same, food vendors increase your efforts to increase monetary circulation in the country,” said Prime Minister Majaliwa.
He said when the Phase V Government came to power, the income of a Tanzanian was small but after five years it has increased to reach 2m/- per year.
He said the increase has enabled the country to attain middle income status even before the expectation of the country’s Development Vision.
Tanzania’s Development Vision targeted to take the country to middle level status through the industrial sector by 2025 but it has enabled to do that in 2020.
After inaugurating the building, the PM visited Kasekeseke village in Tanganyika District in Katavi Region where he launched this year’s cotton selling season.
He said the aim of the government was to restore cooperatives to benefit farmers and called upon leaders of Agricultural Marketing Cooperative Societies (AMCOS) to assist their members.
In addition, the Prime Minister directed extension officers to educate AMCOS leaders on the better ways to run the societies.
He assured the people that the Government will continue assisting them by ensuring extension officers reach farmers in their areas to assist them on how to increase crops production.
