Bagamoyo

Bagamoyo
Bagamoyo in Tanzania might not be the first place on people’s mind when thinking about the Maritime Silk road. But now thanks to a Chinese/Omani backed investment plan to develop a port there – Bagamoyo could be a key hub in the Maritime Silk Road helping to cement links between East Africa and Asian markets. Once complete the port will be the biggest in Africa and again thanks to the Chinese there will be major rail upgrades to connect Bagamoyo to other parts of the continent as well as a new export development zone, which in theory should help Tanzania export more of its own goods as well as becoming a regional hub for other countries wares. China are also developing ports in around 10 other African countries – helping meet the continent’s massive infrastructure needs.
