Government of the United Republic of Tanzania

ATE works closely with the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania as our tripartite partner currently under the Prime Minister’s Office-Policy, Parliament, Labour, Youth, Employment and Persons with Disabilities. As a voice of employers on specific and crosscutting issues, we continue to lobby and advocate for concerns of employers such as reduction of Skills Development Levy (SDL) which we commend the government for the slight reduction from 5% to 4.5% in 2016/2017 financial year. Since such levy remains high in East Africa and globally, we will continue working closely with the Government to ensure that it is significantly reduced to 2% to minimize the cost of doing business and attract sound investors for creation of jobs for the betterment of our country.
