Storage facilities at the Julius Nyerere International Airport have been upgraded in a move meant to support Tanzania’s fresh produce exports as international demand rises.
The move was also meant to abide by the International Civil Aviation Organisation that requires clear separation of the import and export cargo terminals.
The expansion is one of the many expansions that the airport authorities are looking at to increase growing demand for meat, fish and horticultural produce.
The Minister for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Charles Tizeba noted that trade imbalance has impacted airlines and freighters as they bring cargo and leave with empty ballies.
Tizeba said it is important to look at both macro and micro economic factors and policies to support the aviation industry with aligned strategies and implementation.
