The Bag­amoyo port project frame­work agree­ment was signed on March 24, 2013. The aim was to en­hance com­pe­ti­tion along the Eastafrican coast and sup­ple­ment the Tan­za­nian ports of Dar es salaam and Mt­wara. Dur­ing his term, re­tired Pres­i­dent Jakaya Kik­wete vowed to con­struct Tan­za­nia’s big­gest port at the for­mer slave har­bour with fund­ing from Oman and China. But when Pres­i­dent John Magu­fuli came to of­fice in 2015, the project took a back­seat as the gov­ern­ment pri­ori­tised im­prove­ments of Dar es Salaam, Mt­wara and Tanga ports.
