Dubai – March 2, 2022: AFTRADE DMCC has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to expand cooperation with the Government of Tanzania in the field of agriculture. The agreement was signed on February 27, 2022 during the Tanzania Business Forum at Expo 2020.
AFTRADE DMCC distributes agricultural and mining equipment in Africa. At a meeting with the visiting delegation from the Ministry of Agriculture of Tanzania at AFTRADE’s headquarters in Dubai, both sides discussed the areas of cooperation.
The MOU covers the mechanization of agriculture and was signed by AFTRADE’s Director Volha Sheuko in the presence of the President of Tanzania Samia Suluhu Hassan.
“This is an exciting opportunity for our company to provide our range of modern agricultural machinery to Tanzania to boost the mechanization of its agricultural sector,” said Alexander Zingman, head of AFTRADE DMCC.
Agricultural machinery is in demand in Africa as the continent gears up to increase food production. AFTRADE DMCC is the authorized dealer in the African market for most Belarussian manufacturers, and has agricultural deals with several countries to provide tractors and other farming machinery, as well as to provide training in modern farming techniques.
The company has recently signed an agreement in Nigeria to supply thousands of affordable tractors to help farmers boost their farm output. The tractors will be manufactured in Belarus, and distributed in Nigeria.
AFTRADE supports the efforts of African governments to boost agricultural productivity. This will help provide sufficient quantities of food to meet domestic demand, as well as commodity crops for export to the international market.
