Community, CSOs called to influence policy makers for prosperity

In a bid to eradicate poverty and inspire prosperity in Tanzania, the local community - arguably led by the Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) - has been invited to influence the policy makers to learn from best practices and other achievements made by developed countries.

The remarks was made by Prof. Lucian Msambichaka, who is a renowned economist and chief editor of the book,  “How can Tanzania move from poverty to prosperity?” which was launched on 10 March in Dar es Salaam.

Speaking during the book launch event which attracted among others, members from the Civil Society, academicians, government officials and the media, Prof. Msambichaka welcomed local communities and organisations to pick lessons from the book and think of localizing good experiences, and lessons from other countries in all spheres.

Referring to the book, the economics don also urged the entire society to engage in dialogues for inclusive utilization of natural resources that are present in the country towards a robust socio-economic transformation as well as synthesis, adaptation and complementarity within the country. 

For his part, the Deputy State Minister in the Prime Minister's Office responsible for Policy, Parliamentary Affairs, Labour, Employment, Youth and the Disabled, Dr. Abdallah Possi, spoke highly of the book saying it remains as a great testimony to the fact that local academicians and those working in policy issues have the hunger to see Tanzania moving out of poverty.
