You are cordially invited to attend the second convention of Tanzanians in
the American Diaspora which will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota on July
1 – 4, 2010 at Minneapolis Marriott City Center hotel. The theme of the
conference this year is “Unleashing the Diaspora Potential” and it focuses
on key economic sectors in Tanzania including agriculture, energy, mining,
tourism, and human security.
The convention brings together members of the Tanzanian Diaspora in USA,
Tanzanian private sector and government officials; key decision makers from
U.S. businesses; financial institutions, and international organizations with
vested interest in investment and growth in the country.
The convention presents attendees with the latest trade and investment
opportunities in all sectors of the economy, while providing a forum for
potential partnership formation through many networking opportunities.
Attendees will enjoy the visit to the Hollywood of Midwest, the Mall of
America, which is the largest shopping Mall and one of the top tourist
destinations in the country.
DICOTA is dedicated to the virtuous cycle of wealth creation and economic
development of Tanzania and America. Its main goal is to exchange ideas,
best practice and debate issues with inter governmental agencies and
organizations, and to strive to be a catalyst for the establishment of even
better cooperation (Economic, Cultural, Education, Technology, Social
Services, and Sports) between the United States of America and Tanzania.
DICOTA will engage in investment, job creation, or development projects.
DICOTA is firmly grounded in the belief in a democratic, non-theocratic,
culturally and economically inclusive Tanzania. DICOTA is an independent,
non-partisan, non-sectarian organization dedicated to the promotion of
knowledge about Tanzania and to the country’s economic growth. The
organization hopes to be a credible, constructive and independent voice and
thinking on Tanzania. Through its body of work, DICOTA will serve as
source of constructive dialogue and a catalyst for positive change in
Tanzania, and will offer a diverse Tanzanian voice in public discourse in the
United States of America on current issues concerning Tanzania.
