Speaking yesterday after handing over the land to the Contractor at Suma JKT- the commercial arm of National Service (NS), Minister for Industries, Trade and Investments Charles Mwijage said that industrial sheds would stimulate industrialisation in Dodoma Region.

“I take this opportunity to congratulate SIDO for pioneering the government commitment towards industrialising Tanzania. The industrial sheds will be constructed in all zones,” minister Mwijage explained.

“It is an undeniable fact that, the Fifth Phase Government under the captainship of President John Magufuli is all out to turn the country’s economy into a medium and industrial base by 2025,” said Mwijage.

The minister called on citizens to take advantage of SIDO services to grow their businesses adding that the existence of the sheds will further be used to train other entrepreneurs willing to venture into business.
