(MENAFN) Tanzania started construction work on a USD10 billion port and special economic zone, a project backed by China and Oman that aims to transform the country into a regional trade and transport hub.

The port, which will be Tanzania’s biggest, is being built at Bagamoyo, 75km (47 miles) north of Dar-es-Salaam, the commercial capital that is currently the site of the country’s main port.
