Lord Walney (John Woodcock), the UK Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to Tanzania will visit Zanzibar for the first time on 20 – 22 April 2022, alongside a trade delegation of 5 UK companies.

The visit will further develop the trade and investment relationship between the UK and Tanzania, after the successful November 2021 Tanzania-UK Business Forum provided a platform to assess and progress changes in Tanzania’s business environment for mutual economic benefit.

Lord Walney will meet with the President of Zanzibar, H.E. Hussein Mwinyi. A particular focus for government and businesses during the visit will be to highlight strategic projects within the Blue Economy infrastructure, in addition to other sectors, with the ultimate aim to increase trade and investment between our countries.

The Trade Envoy will hold discussions meetings with Minister of State for Labour, Economy and Investment of Zanzibar Mudrik Ramadhan Soraga and Minister of Blue Economy and Fisheries of Zanzibar, Suleiman Masoud Makame.

Lord Walney will engage with businesses and investors in Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam in a range of meetings covering the breadth and depth of the UK’s trade and investment relationship with Tanzania.

Speaking before his visit, Lord Walney said:

“I am privileged to return to Tanzania, and in my first visit to Zanzibar I look forward to exploring further opportunities for investment and trade between the UK and Tanzania, strengthening multiple sectors and identifying the mutual benefits for both our countries.”
