Im­prov­ing Ru­ral Roads

ChinAfrica - - News Roundup -

Tan­za­nian Prime Min­is­ter Kas­sim Ma­jaliwa on July 2 launched the Tan­za­nia Ru­ral and Ur­ban Road Agency (TARURA) aimed at im­prov­ing trans­port in ru­ral ar­eas across the East African na­tion.

Ma­jaliwa said that the agency will help im­prove road net­works in ru­ral ar­eas, hence im­prov­ing trans­port ser­vices for ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties. He ex­plained the move will also re­duce the price of food crops and in­dus­tri­ally pro­duced goods as the trans­port charges will also be re­duced. “We are very op­ti­mistic that large part of the coun­try will be ac­ces­si­ble, fa­cil­i­tat­ing the govern­ment to de­liver so­cial ser­vices to its peo­ple,” he said.
