GAUTAM ADANI, chairman of India’s Adani Group and one of Asia’s richest businessmen, expressed enthusiasm following his recent meeting with the president of Tanzania, Samia Suluhu, last week.

He shared his sentiments about the encounter through a post on social media platform X, where he called the opportunity to meet Suluhu as an honour.

“It was an honour to meet the charismatic President of the United Republic of Tanzania, Her Excellency @SuluhuSamia . Fascinating to hear her deep insights about the future of Africa and discuss the possibilities for forging a long-term partnership with one of Africa’s most promising and strategically important nations. We are excited about the Adani Group leveraging its expertise across various infrastructure sectors, including ports, renewable energy, airports, transmission, distribution and rail to help build world-class infrastructure in Tanzania,” the tycoon posted on X.

Central to their discussions was the Adani Group’s commitment to leveraging its expertise in diverse infrastructure domains, including ports, renewable energy, airports, transmission, distribution, and rail.

The aim is to contribute to the development of world-class infrastructure within Tanzania, thereby bolstering its economic landscape and facilitating sustainable growth.

In May, Adani International Ports Holdings inked a 30-year concession pact with the Tanzania Ports Authority to operate and manage Container Terminal 2 (CT2) at the east African nation’s Dar es Salaam port.

Tanzania, which is rich in natural resources and a growing economy, presents a significant opportunity for international partnerships aimed at enhancing infrastructure capabilities.

Suluhu welcomed the prospect of collaborating with the Adani Group, recognizing their potential to contribute substantially to Tanzania’s infrastructure development goals.

The Adani Group seeks to extend its footprint in Africa through strategic partnerships that align with local developmental priorities.
