CRDB BANK BECOMES THE FIRST BANK IN EAST & CENTRAL AFRICA TO RECEIVE THE UNITED NATIONS GREEN CLIMATE FUND (GCF) ACCREDITATION


SONGDO, South Korea Wednesday, Nov 13, 2019 - Tanzania’s largest commercial bank, CRDB Bank Plc, has today been accredited by the United Nations Green Climate Fund as the financial intermediary for the implementation of green financing in the United Republic of Tanzania.

The accreditation was announced Wednesday during the 24th Green Climate Fund (GCF) Board Meeting, in Songdo, South Korea. This followed an extensive due-diligence assessment, conducted by GCF to ascertain the Bank’s preparedness in managing climate change programmes.


Group CEO & Manging Director Abdulmajid Nsekela says the endorsement marks an important milestone in the Bank’s history and that of the Country.

“We are proud of this achievement and excited because it gives us a unique opportunity to make a huge impact in Tanzania,” quips Nsekela.

GCF Director of Private Sector Facility, Ayaan Adam says CRDB Bank’s accreditation is highly merited, owing to the Bank’s portfolio strength and extensive client base within Tanzania and the Republic of Burundi.

“CRDB Bank is a very strong bank because it has a wide reach and presence, extending to two countries (and will hopefully go beyond). This means the bank is aware of the realities of what is happening in the country, ” says Adam.

CRDB Bank becomes the 3rd commercial bank in Africa to obtain this accreditation, after Ecobank Ghana and Attijariwafa Bank of Morocco. Accredited entities carryout a range of activities that usually include the development of funding proposals and the management and monitoring of projects and programmes.

WHAT THE TIGO - ZANTEL MERGER MEANS FOR CUSTOMERS

By Ahmad Tao,
Dar es Salaam

It was announced this week that two of Tanzania’s best-known telecommunications companies – Tigo and Zantel – have merged. The successful transaction will see the sister companies combine their operations on both mainland Tanzania and Zanzibar.

This move has been expected for some time.

Earlier this year, both Tigo and Zantel’s CEOs took the opportunity to highlight their ambitions for the merger, in an interview with Forbes on building prosperity in Tanzania. In particular, they pointed out the positive impact this merger would have for their customers, through improving the quality of services, while also encouraging progress across the telecommunications sector.

So what exactly does this mean for customers?

In a nutshell, customers of both Tigo and Zantel will now be able to enjoy the services offered by an enhanced network.

This integration combines the strengths of Tigo and Zantel, ultimately leading to better services for customers across the mainland and Zanzibar. Not only does this improve coverage for rural and urban dwellers, it also increases business access to the communications solutions and services offered by these operators.

It is important to note, however, that these benefits are not limited to Tigo and Zantel customers.

Commenting on the merger, Managing Director of Tigo Tanzania, Simon Karikari, expressed his belief that the integration “will create a more inclusive future for Tanzanian telecommunications.” He added that the more consolidated market will also help drive forward innovation.

Experts have highlighted the risks a fragmented market can pose to a telecommunications sector. Notably, that they can undermine long-term sustained investment.

This significant step in market consolidation is a major leap forward in the transformation of the Tanzanian telecommunications industry. There are now five telcos in Tanzania – down from seven earlier this year, following Smart’s exit from the market in October.

Tigo and Zantel’s announcement this week is not only good news for their customers, but a positive one for the country’s telecommunications sector as a whole.
