Ugandans on Wednesday morning welcomed RwandAir’s brand new Airbus 330-200, named Ubumwe (Unity), describing it as a relief to challenges in the region’s airline industry.
The aircraft made a stopover at Entebbe International Airport, Uganda en-route from France to Kigali
At exactly 9:49am local time, the Airbus touched down at the Entebbe amid excitement and joy from the huge audience that included diplomats accredited to Uganda, and officials from Uganda’s Ministry of Transport.
The airline’s chief executive John Mirenge, and a team of the airline officials and journalists were aboard the aircraft, as it touched the tarmac to a spectacular water salute.

Amos Wekesa, the director of Great Lakes Safaris, a Ugandan tour company, said the arrival of the new aircraft will make it easy for his clients to now travel from London to East Africa without making unnecessary stopovers.
“We are happy for Rwanda. This new addition by RwandAir should inspire all of us in the travel industry. When Rwandans are wealthy we are also wealthy because they always choose Uganda as their best destination to spend money,” he said.
The new aircraft, worth $250 million (about Rwf200 billion) brings the airline’s total fleet to nine with additional four planes expected to be delivered by end of February next year.
“The decision by RwandAir to add aircraft of the size of an Airbus A330-200 to the Entebbe route is a positive sign of air transport business viability on the route and a vote of confidence in the air transport industry in Uganda and the economy in general,” said David Kakuba, the Deputy Managing Director of Uganda’s Civil Aviation Authority said.
Robert Ntambi, a director in Uganda’s Transport Ministry, said his government is currently spending $324 million in the modern expansion of Entebbe International Airport to be able to cater for more growing airlines such as RwandAir.
He said that the Ugandan government has plans of constructing another international airport in Hoima, western Uganda and in other different parts of the country.
“We congratulate RwandAir upon this steady growth. Airlines like RwandAir help government to achieve its national strategic goals such as job creation,” Kakuba said.
Mirenge told his audience in Entebbe that RwandAir chose Entebbe as the only stopover of the new Airbus 330-200 from France due to the attention the airline attaches to the Ugandan market.
He reiterated RwandAir’s commitment to playing a part in leveling of fares of air travel in the region; so that East Africans eventually find it cheap to travel by air compared to so many hours spent on travelling by road.
The aircraft is expected to be deployed on the Dubai route.
 “Africa is the new frontier of growth. Ugandans do a lot of businesses in Europe and Asia and this informed our choice for Entebbe. Secondly, the Airbus is called Ubumwe (Unity), after knowing what Rwanda went through – this unity is for Rwandans, Africans and East Africans in particular,” he said.
On her part, Ada Mugenyi Magezi, RwandAir’s Country Manager in Uganda was upbeat that with its smooth air travel and comfort, the RwandAir Airbus will boast the airline industry in East Africa.

Tanzania imeahidi kuendelea kuboresha mazingira ya uwekezaji katika Sekta ya Madini kama ilivyoainishwa katika Sera ya Madini ya mwaka 2009.

Hayo yameelezwa na Naibu Katibu Mkuu wa Wizara ya Nishati na Madini, Profesa James Mdoe wakati wa semina iliyoandaliwa na Shirika la Umma kutoka Japan linalojishughulisha na Mafuta, Gesi na Metali (JOGMEC), Wizara ya Uchumi, Biashara na Viwanda ya Japan, Wakala wa Jiolojia Tanzania (GST), pamoja na Wizara ya Nishati na Madini iliyofanyika jijini Dar es Salaam iliyolenga katika uendelezaji endelevu wa rasilimali madini nchini.

Alisema kuwa, Dira ya Maendeleo ya Mwaka 2025 imelenga katika kuanzisha migodi mikubwa, ya kati na midogo inayoendeshwa kwa kuzingatia usalama na utunzaji wa mazingira hivyo mazingira mazuri ya uwekezaji yatavutia wawekezaji wa ndani na nje ya nchi kuwekeza ili kuendeleza Sekta ya Madini nchini.

Profesa Mdoe alisema kuwa semina hiyo ililenga katika kupata taarifa zilizohuishwa kutoka Japan na Tanzania kuhusu shughuli za utafiti na utunzaji wa mazingira katika Sekta ya Madini nchini na kujadiliana juu ya kuendeleza ushirikiano kati ya nchi husika.

“Semina hii ni muhimu kwani Taasisi hizi zitajadiliana kuhusu kuendeleza ushirikiano katika sekta hii, kufahamu fursa za uwekezaji kwenye Sekta ya Madini kwani wadau kutoka Tanzania na Japan wataweza kupata taarifa za utafiti kuhusu madini yaliyopo nchini na pia Taasisi ya JOGMEC itapata fursa ya kueleza shughuli zake barani Afrika,” alisema Profesa Mdoe.

Akieleza kuhusu Sekta ya Madini nchini, Profesa Mdoe alisema kuwa Sekta hiyo kwa sasa inachangia asilimia 3.5 katika Pato la Taifa na kueleza kuwa asilimia hiyo bado ni ndogo kwani lengo la Serikali ni kuona kuwa Sekta hiyo inachangia mpaka asilimia 10 kufikia mwaka 2025.

Hata hivyo Profesa Mdoe alisema kuwa ili sekta hiyo ichangie ipasavyo katika Uchumi wa Taifa, kutategemea kutoshuka kwa bei ya bidhaa zinazotokana rasilimali madini na uchumi wa dunia kuendelea kukua ili makampuni yanayojishughulisha na utafiti na uchimbaji wa madini yapate fedha kutoka Taasisi za kifedha duniani ili kuanzisha shughuli za utafiti na uchimbaji wa madini.

Aidha Profesa Mdoe aliwaalika wawekezaji kujenga vituo vitakavyotumika katika shughuli za uongezaji thamani madini ya Tanzania kwani alisema kuwa uongezaji thamani madini ndani ya nchi utasaidia kuongeza ajira kwa wananchi, ubadilishanaji wa teknolojia kutoka nchi zilizobobea katika shughuli hizo na kuwezesha ukusanyaji wa kodi ambayo itasaidia katika shughuli nyingine za maendeleo.

Awali Meneja wa Kanzidata na Uchakataji wa Taarifa za Jiolojia kutoka GST, Terence Ngole, alieleza JOGMEC na GST walisaini Mkataba wa Makubaliano mwaka 2010 ambapo mashirikiano kati ya Taasisi hizo yamesaidia kuongeza utaalam na teknolojia katika utafiti wa madini kupitia mafunzo mbalimbali ya muda mrefu na mfupi yanayotolewa na Shirika la JOGMEC.

Alisema kuwa Semina hiyo imeshirikisha wadau mbalimbali kutoka Japan na Tanzania ambao wanajishughulisha na Sekta ya Madini na Mazingira na kwamba ni semina ya kwanza kuendeshwa nchini na Shirika la JOGMEC.

ADAM IHUCHA,


CRAFTS producers in East Africa will soon be able to sell their products to international markets following the plans to establish an annual professional for Business-to-Business (B2B) trade fair for Home Décor, Fashion Accessories and Lifestyle products in the region.

Currently, there is no B2B trade platform for the crafts sector in the whole of East African region.

The Africa and Middle East World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) regional director, Mr Bernard Outah said there is need to establish B2B so that producers could easily sell their products to any country of their choice without problem.
He said, at the moment, the only option for producers to reach regional or international buyers is to travel around the region in search of potential buyers or to participate in trade fairs in South Africa, West Africa or International trade fairs in Europe or the US. He said the high cost of participation fails most of African crafts producers from attending international trade fairs.
“Failure to access market opportunities is one of the key challenges that face most of African crafts producers in East African region,” he said. According to Mr Outah, the establishment of B2B will enable East African crafts producers to excel in the area and boost their businesses at both local and international levels.
Meanwhile, the public has been urged to recognize the crafts sector as a key economic sector in the region and offer required support so that it can unfold its potentiality. CBI programme manager for the export coaching programme in East Africa Ms Heiydy van der Ploeg said there is need to promote and give support to craft sector so that it could help in building up East African countries economies.
According to UNESCO, the crafts sector is the second largest employer in the developing world behind agriculture. Most of those engaged in crafts are majority women with little or no education.
The global crafts sector is valued at USD 34bn/- per annum and 65 percent of global crafts exports come from developing countries. East Africa is one of the most important crafts producing regions on the African continent.
Its geographical location has made it a melting pot of different cultures, resulting in a rich diversity of crafts skills and products.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for TradeMark East Africa (TMEA), Mr Frank Matseart said crafts are important part of the East African trade story but it receives little input from various stakeholders.
He added that a growing tourism sector in the region offers the potential to sell products to tourists through souvenir and gift shops.
“Many hotels and lodges, besides sourcing products for their own in-house gift shops also look for interior decoration products to decorate their houses,” he said.
For the first time, professional craft trade fair is scheduled to take place in the country from September 23rd to 25th, this year.
