Franck Riester, Minister Delegate for Foreign Trade and Economic Attractiveness, attached to the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, will be in Tanzania on October 19. This visit is in line with our effort to strengthen bilateral relations following Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan’s participation in the summit on May 18 on financing African economies and the visit to Paris by Vice President Philip Isdor Mpango on July 3.
Mr. Riester, who will be accompanied by a French business delegation, will be hosted by Dr. Mpango and several members of the Tanzanian government. On this occasion, he will inaugurate the first direct Air France flight between Paris and the airport in Zanzibar since 1974.
