As a co-founder of AMDT, Denmark through its embassy has work by Agricultural Markets Development Trust (AMDT) for the past eight years throughout Tanzania

Excerpt from speech by the Danish Ambassador in Tanzania, H.E. Mette Dissing-Spandet, during the launch of the 2023 Tanzania Agriculture Stakeholders Learning Event (TASLE) in Dodoma:

“Before we delve into the heart of today’s discussions, allow me to express my deepest gratitude to the organizers, the Agricultural Markets Development Trust (AMDT), for their unwavering commitment and dedication. For the past eight years, our Embassy has had the privilege of supporting AMDT with a budget of 58 Billion TZS. Currently, Sweden and Denmark are supporting AMDT in its work to develop and strengthen market systems in selected agricultural value chains here in Tanzania. The progress and impact of this collaboration are indeed commendable, and I want to applaud the entire AMDT team for their hard work and dedication.

Today’s event underscores the importance of connecting, sustaining, and scaling innovations in agriculture market systems— an endeavour that aligns seamlessly with our shared vision for a more prosperous and sustainable Tanzania. The strides made in the agricultural sector in Tanzania are a testament to the concerted efforts of various stakeholders, and I am thrilled to witness the positive transformations taking place. On that note, I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to the government of Tanzania for showcasing serious determination towards improving the agriculture sector. The substantial increase in the budget allocated to the sector this financial year reflects a commendable commitment to fostering growth and development. It is through such collaborative efforts that we can truly make a lasting impact on the lives of those who depend on agriculture for their livelihoods.”
