The Tanzania High Commission in London in collaboration with the Tanzania Association in the UK (TA-UK) are organizing a Tanzania Diaspora Conference (Diaspora 3 London) to take place from Friday, the 6th to Saturday, the 7th May 2011 at Sattavis Patidar Center, Forty Avenue J/W The Avenue, Wembley Park, Middlesex HA9 9PE(London, United Kingdom).

Conference Agenda:
The two-day event is a continuation of the Mission’s efforts to engage the Tanzanian Diaspora in its area of accreditation, including the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. The conference agenda will include matters arising from the past two conferences held in London in 2008 and 2010.

As it was the case with the previous conferences the Tanzanian private sector has been invited to participate. These include banks, NHC and estate agents, employment agencies and strategic companies that will be targeting to employ people from the Diaspora. Tanzanian companies as well as Tanzanian NGOs and groups operating in the UK are encouraged to participate.

 Diaspora 3- London is necessary for the following reasons:

•To carry forward the Government’s commitment to actively engage the diaspora to the development of their country.
•To acknowledge the growing need of the qualified diaspora to relocate back to Tanzania following available opportunities.
•To encourage professional Tanzanians in the Diaspora such as Medical Doctors, Computer engineers, Accountants, to participate in the social economic development activities back in Tanzania.
•To acknowledge the value and importance of the Diaspora and consider the best way for the Government to engage them.
•To review progress made since the establishment of the Diaspora Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
•And finally to deepen the link between the Diaspora, their Government and their home country.

The theme for this year’s conference is ‘A Participatory Diaspora, a Stronger Tanzania.’ Apart from advocating for the continued efforts of the Government to engage the Diaspora, the theme acknowledges the value and importance of Tanzanian Diaspora in development of our country.

Sattavis Patidar Centre is located just off the North Circular Road and the car park on ‘The Avenue’ Corner of Forty Avenue will be available for the conference attendants. Those wishing to come by bus can take buses number: 245, 223, 83, 182, 297 and PR2. By tube they can use Metropolitan Line or Jubilee Line to Wembley Park.
