    Turkish Ambassador to Tanzania Dr Sander Gurbuz said his country has ‘voted’ Tanzania as one of its foreign investment destinations due to Tanzania’s strengthened political stability and high levels of democracy among African countries.
    In an interview with The Guardian on Monday, Ambassador Gurbuz recommended President Jakaya Kikwete’s move to endorse the ‘Election Expenses Law’, since it gears at ensuring fair election processes. He said such laws are very important in a democratic country like Tanzania.
    “We consider Tanzania as a democratic country in Africa, where elections are conducted peacefully and presidential terms are properly set. Our investors are impressed with the country’s political stability”, said the Ambassador.
    Gurbuz said that he is currently receiving Turkish delegations with intentions to invest in the sectors of textile, tourism, health and construction. He said that in the agricultural sector the investors have shown interest to build fruit processing industries, while in tourism they are most likely to construct five star hotels.
    He said that Turkey will boost the country’s tourism sector because it is more advanced with 26 million tourists visiting the country.
    Gurbuz said the biggest energy company in Turkey ‘Calik’ has already shown interest to invest in power production.
    He however said they are planning to double the number of student’s sponsorship for higher learning institutions. He said that starting this year they will be giving sponsorship for 100 students per year.
    He said that plans are under way to build a university which will accommodate more than 3,000 students.
    “We believe that the best way to help a country is to educate its people. We prefer teaching people on how to fish instead of giving free fish”, he said.
    Gurbuz said that so far there are more than 200 Tanzanian graduates who have studied in Turkey over the past years.
