Co-organised by the Research on Poverty Alleviation (REPOA) and the Dutch Embassy in Tanzania, the dialogue took place in Dar es Salaam on October 21, gathering local public officials, foreign experts, and representatives of diplomatic corps and international organisations.
In his presentation at the event, Doanh introduced Vietnam’s poverty alleviation efforts and policies to attract investment, improve the business climate and increase national competitiveness.
He also made recommendations on development policies for Tanzania and fielded questions from other participants.
Speakers suggested that nations with limited resources should prioritise strategic areas that offer key socio-economic services for compressive and balanced growth, rather than just focusing on boosting GDP and per capita income.
