    [​IMG] Mr Mukesh Ambani




    WORLD fourth richest person Mukesh Ambani through his conglomerate, Reliance Industries, intends to invest heavily in Tanzania's air transport and hospitality industries.

    Mr Ambani revealed this at the end of talks with the Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, Mr Ezekiel Maige, at Serengeti National Park (SENAPA) on Sunday.

    The tycoon ended his three-day tour of SENAPA on Sunday.

    "I will be sending a special team to look into areas of investment here because Tanzania is becoming a very potential area for business," Mr Ambani told journalists.

    He said he was particularly targeting luxury hotels chain here to boost the growing tourism industry.

    Mr Ambani is at the moment investing over US $8 billion in the construction of a five-star property, the proposed 'Delta Hotel' in Nairobi, but considers to build several high class hotels in Tanzania.

    In Tanzania, Reliance Industries owns GAPCO oil. "We are going diversify our business by expanding into tourism sector as well," pointed out Mr Ambani who praised Serengeti as 'God's gift to Tanzania'

    He pledged to spearhead the establishment of direct air flights connecting Dar es Salaam or Kilimanjaro with Mumbai and other Asian destinations including Beijing, Shanghai and Tokyo.

    He said the flights would open up the local tourism industry to Asia and Middle-East countries.

    "Mr Ambani has promised either to do it alone or involve both the Tanzanian and Indian governments to link their important cities over the air to boost tourism and other trading or business opportunities between the two countries," added the tourism minister, Mr Maige.

    Ambani (53), is an Asian business magnate and the chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries, described to be the largest private sector enterprise in India and one of the largest private sector conglomerates in the world.
    His personal stake in Reliance Industries is reported to be 48 per cent.

    By July 2010, he was named the richest man in Asia and the fourth richest man in the world with a personal wealth of US$29.0 billion.

    On 29 October 2007, a strong rally in the Indian stock market and the appreciation of the Indian rupee boosted the market capitalization of all Reliance group companies, making Mr Ambani the world's richest man for a while in that year, with net worth climbing to US$63.2 billion, leaving Bill Gates behind at around $56 billion.

    According to Forbes Magazine forecasts, he is expected to regain the title of the richest man in the world in 2014.

    I dont think Tanzania needs more luxurious hotels according to our standards. The hotels we have are ok, what we need is RURAL DEVELOPMENT, boost our rural areas so that all citizens in rural areas can get Medicine, clean water, boost agricutural industri and give adequate education rather than to think of Tourism. Tourism does not benefit a poor farmer in Kyela or Ukara. We need more modern agricultur as this country depends mostly on farming rather than Serengeti and Ngorongoro whic per today they have been intensly exploited. The lodges we have in these national Parks afe good it is just a matter of renovating them, we do not need a 5star hotel while the village nearby do not have a dispensary or clean water or a nice primary school.
