  • Description

    FIVE COUNTRIES HAVE BEGUN TALKS IN DAR ES SALAAM ON THE FORMATION OF A JOINT SHIPPING LINE TO OPERATE ON LAKE TANGANYIKA. THE COUNTRIES INVOLVED ARE CONGO-KINSHASA, ZAMBIA, TANZANIA, BURUNDI, AND RWANDA.

    OPENING THE CONFERENCE, TANZANIA'S COMMUNICATIONS MINISTER, MR. JOB LUSINDE, LISTED THREE AIMS FOR THE PROJECT. THOSE AIMS ARE: MORE EFFICIENT SERVICES OVER THE WATERWAY; FREER MOVEMENT OF PEOPLE AND GOODS; AND CLOSER ECONOMIC, SOCIAL, AND POLITICAL CO-OPERATION BETWEEN NEIGHBOUR STATES.

    JOINT KENYAN-UGANDAN-TANZANIAN SERVICES OVER LAKE VICTORIA WERE PROOF OF THE SUCCESS A LAKE TANGANYIKA LINE COULD BE, HE SAID.

    THE SHIPPING PROJECT WAS A CONGO-KINSHASA PROPOSAL AT A CONFERENCE OF EAST AND CENTRAL AFRICAN LEADERS IN KINSHASA LAST DECEMBER.

    THE TANZANIAN CONGOLESE ZAMBIAN AND BURUNDI DELEGATIONS AT THE DAR ES SALAAM MEETING ARE ALL HEADED BY MINISTERS. RWANDA'S TEAM IS LED BY A TOP OFFICIAL OF THE NATIONAL BANK.

    ALL THE COUNTRIES BORDER THE GREAT INLAND WATERWAY WHICH RUNS MORE THAN 400 MILES (650 KMS) FROM RWANDA IN THE NORTH TO ZAMBIA IN THE SOUTH.
