The “Noble Victoria Center” Second Season China-Tanzania Job Fair kicked off in the University of Dar es Salaam on June 17th, local time, attracting hundreds of attendees across the country including Samia Hassan Suluhu, Vice President of Tanzania, Leonard Akwilapo, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education of Tanzania, Lv Youqing, Chinese Ambassador to Tanzania, Lin Zhiyong, Chief Representative of Economic and Commercial Representation of China in Tanzania, officials of China and Tanzania, business representatives and student candidates.

Organized by the Confucius Institute at the University of Dar es Salaam, the Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Tanzania and the China Council for the Promotion of Peaceful National Reunification in Tanzania, the job fair attracts 100 companies, aiming to meet the needs of those Chinese-invested companies in Tanzania and help to solve the employment problem of Tanzanian graduates, expand the influence of Chinese-funded enterprises in Tanzania and continue to deepen the friendship between the two countries.

Samia Hassan Suluhu said at the opening ceremony that university students should keep on learning and enhancing their professional skills in order to come to the fore in the job fair. It is fairly praiseworthy for Chinese companies to take practical actions in supporting Tanzanian graduates' employment. It is hoped that China and Tanzania can continue to cooperate in this way, so that more Chinese enterprises in Tanzania can find the suitable employees.
