    May be and may be not. Are they bringing any production facilities to Tanzania or just a sales office? On the other hand do Tanzanians have the required skills and competences to take advantage of the opportunity? There are a good number of universities and colleges in Tanzania offering degrees and diplomas in computer science, computer engineering, informatics and other branches of ICT. But nothing dramatic appears to be happening in this area from the graduates of these institutions. Aren't they good enough to innovate and make an impact on the TZ economy? May be I am not well informed. Help.
