The Prime Minister of Tanzania Kassim Majaliwa visited the company in Mauritius yesterday and was told by The Chief Executive Officer, Mr Patrick de Labauve that the company planned to increase sugar production by establishing more sugar cane estates and venture into tourism to tap into its great potential.

According to a statement from Prime Minister’s Office, the Mauritius investors have asked the Tanzanian government for the opportunities to invest in  tourism sector in Kilimanjaro Region which has many tourists attractions including Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa.
