According to Dr. Mnongya, she aims to use her role as Senior Research Fellow of ACCPA to advance Tanzania’s economic development, especially in promoting win-win cooperation between Tanzania and China.
“My interest is vested in how Tanzania can get the most from its relations with China. I see lots of opportunities to deepen the ties between the two countries across multiple sectors.”
“I aim to produce research and reports that will help shape public policy on Tanzania-China relations,” she said.
The ACCPA recently held a one-day, fully funded training workshop for select journalists (TV, radio, newsprint, online blogs, etc.) in Dar es Salaam on China-Tanzania relations.
