    The Open University of Tanzania (OUT) and a Chinese company, China Henan International, have signed a 3.592bn/- agreement for the construction of a ten-storey multi-purpose building at the university's Kinondoni premises in Dar es Salaam.
    Information circulated at a brief function held in Dar es Salaam for the signing of the agreement showed that the building will be erected within 12 months, from April 6, this year to April 6, next year.
    A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the deal was signed by Zhu Haohui on behalf of China Henan International and OUT vice-chancellor Prof Tolly Mbwette.
    According to the OUT VC, the building will help his institution register more students to enable it attain its goals in higher education covering various disciplines at various levels.
    Presently, Mbwette informed, the university has over 3,500 students studying in different disciplines and at various levels.
    For his part, Haohui promised to put up a building that would be one of the symbols of excellence in the construction industry in Tanzania and the region at large.
