PRESIDENT Jakaya Kikwete has inaugurated 65 million US dollars (140bn/-) worth state-of-the-art National Microfinance Bank (NMB) building and pledged continued government support to the bank’s efforts to promote financial inclusion.

The modern building with capacity to accommodate over 1000 staff, modern rooms, canteen to cater for all staff and modern private bank proves the solidity and sustainability of the bank.

With the widest network of more than 170 branches and over 600 ATMs as well as 95 per cent coverage of all districts.

“NMB Bank is one of the successful and model of privatisation stories. It pays dividends as well as various taxes to the government,” President Kikwete said in Dar es Salaam at the weekend while pointing finger to other public institutions are still depending on government subsidy.

He said NMB success as the best and most profitable Tanzanian bank followed a transformation process done during his 10 years term in office.

Government has 30 per cent stake in the bank and 20 per cent is owned by Tanzanians through the Dar bourse.

He urged the bank to continue promoting financial inclusion to reach more the financially under-served population.

Tanzania is the global leader in providing mobile money banking.

“When I became president 10 years ago, NMB was a very small bank and was referred as the proletariat bank, but today it is the biggest bank in the country with the widest network, the most profitable and sustainable bank. I am very proud of you,” he said.

Also Mr Kikwete launched a modern private banking located at the new head office powered by four teller cubicles and two ATM machines. It is the third after NMB Bunge Dodoma and NMB Oyster plaza branch in Masaki.

Most of the money spent in constructing the seven storey building was paid to local contractors with few foreign contractors.

Rais Jakaya Kikwete akikata utepe kufungua jengo la makao makuu ya NMB jijini Dar es Salaam.
The NMB Bank Managing Director, Ms Ineke Bussemaker, said the new head office reflects the priorities of the bank as it complies with all standards set by the bank.

“The building is a symbol of what NMB can achieve together, it consumes spacious working area, modern and stylish features with high end finishing, high safety detectors and fire systems with number of meeting rooms for staff, customers and visitors, semi-industrial kitchen,” she said.

Tanzania kujifunza uzalishaji makaa ya mawe kwa Liberia‏

Arusha

NCHI ya Liberia na Tanzania zimekubaliana kuongeza ushirikiana katika masula ya kiuchumi na kijamii, ambapo kwa Tanzania imeonesha nia ya kujifunza  uzalishaji wa makaa ya mawe na zao la mpira kutoka nchi hiyo.

Hayo yalisemwa jana na Naibu Waziri wa Mambo ya Nje na Ushirikiano wa Kimataifa,  Mahadhi Maalim, wakati alipokuwa akisoma taarifa fupi ya kumuaga Rais wa Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, muda mfupi kabla ya kupanda ndege kwenye Uwanja wa Kimataifa wa Kilimanjaro (KIA), kurejea nchini kwake, baada ya kuhitimisha ziara ya siku tatu nchini.

Alisema kuwa Liberia pia imeeleza hisia zake za kutaka kujifunza uzalishaji wa kahawa na mambo ya viwanda vya uvuvi nchini.

Mbali na masuala hayo, walizungumzia kuhusu amani na mshikamano katika nchi za Afrika, hasa katika nchi za Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Kongo, Guinea Bissau, Mali na Somali, pamoja na kutafuta jinsi ya kutatua matatizo ya nchi hizo.

Aidha alisema Rais Ellen  akiwa ziarani nchini, Julai 18, aliitisha mkutano  Chuo Kikuu cha Dar es Salaam, na kuzungumzia kupambana na malaria na umuhimu wa wanawake katika kuendeleza Afrika.

Baada ya kutembelea Chuo Kikuu cha Dar es Salaam, Julai 19 alitembelea Arusha katika kiwanda cha A to Z kuangalia uzalishaji wa vyandarua vyenye dawa ya kuua mbu, kwa lengo la kutokomeza malaria na pia alitembelea maabara ya utafiti wa magonjwa ya binadamu na mazao.

Hata hivyo baada ya ziara hiyo Rais huyo alimwalika Rais Jakaya Kikwete, kutembelea Liberia, ambapo Rais Kikwete aliupokea kwa furaha na kuahidi kuwasiliana kwa njia ya mtandao wao wa umma.

World Leaders Convene to Address Global Crisis of Child Malnutrition at the G8 Summit

G-8 leaders urged to end child malnutrition in order to stimulate long-term economic

development and greater progress against hunger and poverty

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In advance of the G-8 Summit at Camp David this weekend, U.S and world leaders met on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. today to assess efforts to combat child malnutrition—a condition which results in three million preventable child deaths annually and drains billions of dollars in lost productivity and health care costs from poor countries.  Participants at the “Scaling Up Nutrition: Calling All Champions” briefing called upon G-8 leaders to prioritize action on child malnutrition as part of their development and food security discussions at the G-8 Summit.

The briefing included President Jakaya Kikwete of the United Republic of Tanzania, high-level officials from the White House, Government of Canada, U.S. Congress, U.S. Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Millennium Challenge Corporation, World Bank and the World Food Program.

Nearly 200 million children worldwide are chronically malnourished, resulting in huge losses not only in human potential but also economic productivity in some of the world’s poorest countries. “G-8 leaders have the opportunity to change the lives of millions of children by making a bold commitment to tackle malnutrition. Wiping out chronic malnutrition is the best first step toward helping developing countries’ economies,” said Carolyn Miles, President and CEO of Save the Children. “We know that malnutrition can lead to anywhere between a two to three percent loss in GDP” [gross domestic product].

President Obama, along with G-8 and African leaders, is expected to announce on Friday new efforts to advance global agricultural development aimed at addressing hunger and poverty in Africa.

Several speakers noted today, however, that action and investment targeted specifically at improving nutrition for women and children during the critical 1,000 day window between pregnancy and age two would promote even greater long-term progress on hunger and poverty alleviation.

“Good nutrition during the critical 1,000 day window from pregnancy to a child’s second birthday is crucial to developing a child’s cognitive capacity and physical growth.  Ensuring a child receives adequate nutrition during this window can yield dividends for a lifetime, as a well-nourished child will perform better in school, more effectively fight off disease and even earn more as an adult,” said Dr. Rajiv Shah, Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

“People are beginning to realize that agriculture is not just about growing more food. It is about growing more nutritiousfoods and making sure they are available and accessible to all, particularly women and children during the first 1,000 days. This is a welcome, and long overdue, change – and one that we must all act on as quickly as possible,” said Kathy Spahn, President and CEO of Helen Keller International.

Several speakers noted that earlier this week an expert panel of Nobel laureate economists known as the Copenhagen Consensus found that fighting malnutrition in young children is the number one investment that policymakers can make in order to improve global health and development. The research indicated that for every $1 invested in nutrition, as much as $138 in better health and increased productivity is generated. 

“This research is especially timely in our budget-constrained environment.  It is essential that the global community rally to mobilize not only more money for nutrition, but also more nutrition for the money already spent on hunger and poverty alleviation,” said Adam Taylor, Vice President, Advocacy at World Vision.

Many at the event called on the G-8 to commit to a concrete goal to reduce chronic malnutrition and that investments in food security, agriculture and health are specifically targeted to improve nutrition for women and children.

“Nutrition must be integrated into all of our food security efforts — from emergency food assistance and school meals programs, to the food grown by local farmers,” said Richard Leach, President and CEO of World Food Program USA. “This is an unprecedented moment in the fight against hunger where there is commitment among all sectors — public and private — to address the nutritional needs of vulnerable populations.”

“We know that investments in nutrition –particularly within the 1,000 day window between pregnancy and a child’s second birthday – are the most cost-effective development interventions available, bar none. The key is to generate the political will and commitment to make those investments both now and into the future,” said Ambassador Tony Hall, Executive Director of The Alliance to End Hunger.

The briefing also highlighted commitments from the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) movement, an effort led by 27 developing countries to accelerate progress against malnutrition, in coordination with G-8 governments, donors and UN agencies.

“The United States has long played a vital role in mustering political will and resources to bolster global prosperity,” said Bread for the World President Rev. David Beckmann. “U.S. leadership can support the efforts of developing countries to focus on achieving greater self-reliance, productivity, and food security, and a reduction in chronic hunger and malnutrition – especially during the critical 1,000 days between pregnancy and a child’s second birthday.”

Event conveners included 1,000 Days, The Alliance to End Hunger, Bread for the World, CARE, ChildFund International, Concern Worldwide, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, Helen Keller International, Save the Children, World Food Program USA and World Vision.
