Engaging Skills of the Diaspora in Tanzania.
The knowledge and skills of the Diaspora is an additional source of engagement for countries to tap into in building the capacity and capabilities of organisations and ultimately the country. The event is aimed at galvanising the Tanzanian Diaspora of all generations in harnessing their skills, knowledge and investment in the continued economic development of Tanzania.
AfricaRecruit survey of the Diaspora in 2006 indicated that over half left Africa for career professional reasons with a least over 70% of the respondents indicating that they had plans to return back home at some point in time and will like to explore how they can use their knowledge and skills in their country of origin development. Creating an environment to engage directly with potential employers will enable the Diaspora to make informed decisions.
The Diaspora confrence aims to fulfil key Government mission of endeavouring to create a platform of universal inclusionfor Tanzanian Diaspora Communityin the United Kingdom and Europe, so that they participate in the development of their country.
