Investors from The Netherlands Visit Zanzibar

Zanzibar received a business delegation of Dutch investors led by the Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation. Zanzibar welcomes investors in various areas like tourism, construction and natural resources (oil and gas).

The business delegation’s visit follows last November’s trip to the Kingdom of Netherlands by President Shein, at the invitation of His Majesty King Willem Alexander.

The Netherlands investors including SHELL, BAM, Boskalis dredging, Van Oord, and Haskoning briefed the President about their companies, as they expressed much interest to come back and invest in Zanzibar. This was, arguably, the biggest group of investors from Europe to visit the Islands, which currently relies on tourism as leading foreign currency earner.
