Once these projects are maximized and fully implemented, the island nation of Zanzibar could see as many as 9000 jobs created for its residents.

These figures were relayed on Wednesday during the start of the Zanzibar Trade and Investment Forum 2022.

The Zanzibar Investment Promotion Agency (ZIPA), pointed out that these projects rely on the water surrounding the island nation, signaling a growth in the nation’s blue economy.

Zanzibar’s most vital and abundant resource is the body of water that surrounds it. The island nation’s administration continues to find new ways to utilize this asset to develop its economy.
