A word from the Chief Executive Officer

It gives me a great pleasure to announce to our key stakeholders MOFED Tanzania Limited achievement of one its key milestones of developing the Company website. Fifteen months ago, the Board of Directors of MOFED, ushered into office a new Management team aimed at turning around the Company in order to improve its profitability and increase its shareholder value in the short to long term.

The development of this website is a manifestation of the commitment and team work that exist within the entire Management team. I therefore wish to take this opportunity to thank all the Management team and indeed our consultant who worked hard to contribute to the development of this website.

It is my brief that this website portal would create a platform for MOFED to interact with its various stakeholders, including but not limited to, our existing and potential clients, suppliers, social media, industry related associations, various relevant authorities and so forth. Further I also wish to use this occasion to inform our stakeholders that the Management has set itself to achieve other equally critical milestones and one of which would soon be rolled out is stated below

  • Strategic Plan for the next five years

It is my expectation that this website would enhance our existing communication channels and I therefore look forward to your valued feedback.

Chief Executive Officer, MOFED TZ
