On the 9th September 2022, TUICO had an opportunity to exchange ideas with the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) Tanzania Branch. The occasion happened along with the Mid-Autumn Festival Celebrations in Dar es Salaam.

The occasion involved critical discussions about enterprises and organisations representing economics and trade in China, aiming to promote economic and trade relations between China and the United Republic of Tanzania.

China is one of the largest sources of foreign investment in Tanzania. Chinese investors have established projects in many sectors where TUICO unionises, including manufacturing, fishing, and agro-processing.

TUICO presented its roles in defending the workers' rights, dignity and interest, i.e., signing and overseeing collective bargaining agreements, maintaining good relations between employees, employers and the government, and thus increasing efficiency for the benefit of all actors.

The union highlighted its role in ensuring working groups work in a clean and healthy environment and educating employees about labour laws, employee rights and occupational health and safety issues.

TUICO presented its participation in amending investment policies and legislation, labour procedures and tripartite responsibilities in promoting a decent work agenda, youth employability, and vocational education and training in Tanzania.

CCPIT Representative in Tanzania, Ms Cao Lina, commended TUICO's excellent work promoting decent jobs in Tanzania. She highlighted the CCPIT's role in ensuring Chinese investors in Tanzania practice decent jobs to bring efficiency to all actors, i.e., workers, companies and governments.

The media, CCPIT, Chinese companies, and the Tanzania Union of Industrial and Commercial Workers (TUICO) attended the occasion.
