President of the United Republic of Tanzania, John Magufuli praised Kuwait's role in supporting his country's vital humanitarian and infrastructural projects.

President Magufuli made the remarks during his reception last night of Kuwait Ambassador to Tanzania Jassem Al-Najem, said an embassy statement received by KUNA.

The Tanzanian President added that Kuwait's efforts were deeply recognized through providing urgent humanitarian aid and digging 27 wells in the capital Dodoma in face of the drought season that swept through the African continent.

Acknowledging the significant role played by Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED), Magufuli invited the Fund to visit Tanzania and consider supporting and financing a number of infrastructural projects, especially the new highway project in Dodoma.

He pledged to name the highway after His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.

Last March, Tanzania signed a USD-51-million loan agreement with KFAED. The loan agreement aims to finance the project of 'Nyahua-Chaya Road', which links Tanzania to Rwanda and Burundi, to increase commercial movement along 85 kilometers.

On his part, Ambassador Al-Najem said Kuwait would continue to play a leading role in humanitarian aid regionally and in the international arena.

The ambassador also praised efforts exerted by KFAED and other Kuwaiti entities in providing assistant to Tanzania and its people.
