Word of the CEO

"We enter 2022 with a strong balance sheet and a year of transition behind us. Our portfolio has some good performers and some weaker ones, but overall, the underlying growth and momentum in EBTIDA in our subsidiaries are positive. Zanrec, for instance, achieved its first-ever year with a positive EBITDA. Persistence and a strong focus on what we do best helped us get there, coupled with a strong recovery in tourism in Zanzibar. Our key focus going forward is on generating positive EBITDAs in our subsidiaries and a steady growth trajectory. Tanzania is not immune to world events, but the underlying growth in the economy remains strong. Furthermore, Tanzania has a focus on sectors that now see strong demand, such as the agricultural sectors of wheat, maize, sweet potatoes and bananas, or cash crops like cashew nuts, coffee, tea, and sisal. Apart from agriculture, major natural gas discoveries have recently become even more attractive due to the global energy crisis.

These structural developments support the continued high growth of Tanzania, and our investments benefit indirectly, for instance in the need for housing, bigger offices or more bank branches (supplied by our subsidiary Ecohomes). Improved tourism, especially with a focus on eco-tourism drives the demand for the services provided by Zanrec. However, environmental concerns in terms of climate change have had negative effects for the availability of milk, which hurt Shambani Milk in 2021. For a population of 60 million expected to double in 20 years, food security is going to be an important issue to solve. MTI will continue to work with our partners in the region, to facilitate and to take part in the success of high-growth ventures, to further support the growth of a stronger and more sustainable portfolio of investments."
