 Message from the Chairman

African Forestry was founded in 2016 and registered as an NGO operating in Tanzania uniting all business firms regardless of their operational size. The objective is to promote and advance best forestry industrial practices as well as addressing sustainable forest resources management challenges through undertaking regular dialogues and consultations with the government authorities at national and sub-national levels. Since my tenure as the Chairperson of the AF (about one year ago) it has been note that majority of the private sector business firms in forestry have not joined the organization. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage all business firms and other players in forestry through the private sector initiatives; to join and become active members of the African Forestry. Remember the saying “Umoja ni nguvu utengano ni udhaifu” implying that when you stand together for a common destiny you become strong but when divided you become weak.
