President Kikwete who concluded his four day official visit to the sultanate on Thursday, led a government delegation which focused on luring businesses from Oman to invest in oil and gas sub sectors. The deputy premier said his government has a lot of confidence in Kikwetes administration and wants to foster good bilateral relations by engaging business communities. We will form a special committee that will visit Tanzania soon, the statement quoted him as saying. It also quoted President Kikwete as telling the deputy premier that recent discoveries of massive natural gas and prospects of possible oil finds provide new areas of investment to foreigners. Mr Kikwete also met with Tanzanians living and working in the Arab nation and briefed them on progress made in areas of agriculture, education, health and infrastructure plus rapid political developments sweeping across the country. The Tanzanians told the president various problems which they are facing while working in Oman while Kikwete urged them to work hard and help development at home by promoting destination Tanzania among investors and business persons in Muscat.
