Despec Africa EPZ recently announced its participation at the Saba-Saba Fair in Dar-Es-Salaam, Tanzania. The Dar-es-Salaam International Trade Fair is an annual government event and is the key exhibition for the region.
The fair has established its strategic importance as a gateway for the latest products in Tanzania as well as in the East, Central and the Southern African Region. Supported by the services of the Dar es Salaam harbour, the fair acts as one stop centre for reaching countries such as Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
In addition, the event leverages the patronage of the Tanzania business community who both exhibit and use it as a forum for business exchange and is therefore supported by the government through the Ministry of Industry and Trade. It is also backed by the Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Agriculture (TCCIA) and the Confederation of Tanzania Industries (CTI) as well as other institutions in the country.
Despec Africa EPZ participated in the 11 day event with a focus on promoting its brands and product assortment in addition to addressing customer queries associated with in-country availability.

The initiative allows Despec to stock goods locally saving them huge costs associated with VAT and import duty.
