Leadership training nurtures Tanzanian young talent
In support of the nation’s Belt and Road Initiative, PolyU launched the “Tanzania Leadership Programme” to provide cross-cultural leadership training to a hundred young professionals in Tanzania. The first cohort of 30 participants will attend a week of expert lectures, knowledge sharing sessions and field visits in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, with a focus on the five major areas of Tanzania’s development, including green manufacturing, urban planning, information technology for international trade, tourism, and public health. In future, PolyU plans to extend the Programme to other Belt and Road countries. Details
