African countries putting their self-interests first is the Code of Conduct for the future. And there’s a recent article that supports this claim.
The following information is from The East African.
In a trade negotiation with Britain, Tanzania is planning on protecting its locally-made goods. Stella Manyanya, the Deputy Minister for Trade, and Bernard Haule, the Director of Trade Investments and Protection in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation, advised that any deal that poses a threat to Tanzanian-made products will not be accepted.
Stella Manyanya stated the following:
“Our focus in the negotiations is more on areas that are most profitable to Tanzania first and foremost.”
In the wake of Brexit, the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union, all products from the UK will not be allowed into Tanzania. Industrial and agricultural machinery, mechanical appliances, vehicle equipment, and pharmaceutical products have been the dominant exports from the UK. Gold, coffee, cashew nuts, and cotton are the principal exports from Tanzania.
