Regional Economic & Development Planning in East Africa: Natural Gas – Fueling Tanzania Forward
Natural gas, discovered recently in coastal East Africa, has the potential to change the development equation in regional economic development and planning. Natural gas is coming ashore in Mtwara, Tanzania, a relatively undeveloped region in south-eastern Tanzania, which is creating opportunities and very serious social and environmental challenges. Colonel (Retd) Joseph Simbakalia, Regional Commissioner of Mtwara, is responsible for charting the future economic development plan for Mtwara. He will present the case to the audience and a distinguished faculty panel. This will be followed by responsive remarks from the panel, and an open question and answer period.
