TAZARA and The Chinese Governement

THE Third Railway Survey and Design Institute Group Corporation (TSDI) of China has completed the field phase of the feasibility study which will determine options for Tanzania Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA)'s future development.
TSDI survey leader Jai Guangzhi reported that their field work in Tanzania and Zambia had been well supported and facilitated by the TAZARA Coordinating Team headed by Zambian and Tanzanian Engineers Sinonge Masiliso and Timothy Kayani respectively.
The feasibility study being undertaken followed a December 2009 request by the governments of Tanzania and Zambia for the Chinese to consider future involvement in TAZARA beyond the provision of loans for periodic procurement equipments, materials and services.
