Speaking during an interview the newly appointed Director General, Mr Plasduce Mbossa, said he will priorititise efficiency of ports in Tanzania and ensure “their best performance.”
In ensuring efficiency of the local ports, he hinted on partnerships with the private sector to increase both cargo and revenue collections while both parties benefit from the business.
