Southern Africa Trade and Transport Facilitation Project (SATTFP)

Project Description

The governments of Tanzania and Malawi have observed that delays in crossing the border, cargo clearance, and movement of passengers create barriers to trade in the region. Such delays, which account for the congestions at the Songwe-Kasumulu border crossing, also raise the cost of transportation of goods, which in turn affects the economy of both countries. The governments of Tanzania and Malawi have thus reached an agreement to build a One-Stop Border Post (OSBP) on their common border at the Songwe-Kasumulu crossing.

In collaboration with ECG, the Tanzania Buildings Agency (TBA) will provide consultancy services for the intended OSBP construction and improvement.The timeframe for the execution of this project will be 36
months on two phases.
