THE Agricultural Markets Development Trust (ADMT) has handed over a report of a study that aimed at identifying policy and non-policy issues that promote or hinder the development of the private sector in the Dodoma Region.

The report was submitted on Monday to Dodoma Regional Commissioner Rosemary Senyamule by an official from the Trust.

The event was also attended by Dodoma Regional Administrative Officer (RAS), Kaspar Mamuya, Assistant RAS (Economics and Production) Aziza Mumba, and Assistant RAS (Investment and Trade) Mwajabu Nyamkoroma, among others.

The study covered all district councils of Dodoma and involved discussion with the District Business Council with the objective of gathering and analysing key impending and constraining issues (policy and non-policy) at the district level that require in-depth dialogue for the betterment of business growth in each council.

Speaking after receiving the copy of the report RC Senyamule explained that AMDT and Dodoma Secretariat have done a big thing and it is a great milestone towards addressing the barriers for the Private Sector in Dodoma to flourish.

She said that the report is a working tool and urged the regional management team to read and use it, instructing Assistant RAS Economics and Production that she wants to see changes in the situation of small business owners in Dodoma since the study has identified the obstacles and put forward recommendations on what can be done so that they can prosper.

The RC also appreciated AMDT and was grateful for its readiness to work with Dodoma in improving the lives of its citizens.

RAS Mamuya said he was also proud of the report as it has highlighted other business opportunities in Dodoma that are not widely known.

According to him, Dodoma is leading the region in different types of Minerals available while also having several tourist attractions and diverse opportunities in the agriculture sector.

Mary Kalavo, senior strategic manager of gender, youth, and business environment at ADMT highlighted that the Trust has footprints in all districts of Dodoma Region.

She said they are open to continuing to engage with the RC office to increase incomes, employment, and investment opportunities for the people of Dodoma.

Dodoma is one of the strategic Regions and AMDT has worked in the region since 2017 with different actors including NGOs, the Private Sector, LGAS, and farmers.
