Huatan company is always following the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the “Go Global” strategy. It takes the development of Sino-African economic and trade exchanges and the construction of Sino-African economic and trade bridges and ties as the core concept of the company's operation. With the increasingly close exchanges in politics, trade and culture between China and Africa, the company will continue to invest more in Tanzania and Africa.

In 2021, the comprehensive service cooperation zone of East Africa Commercial and Logistics Industrial Park successfully passed the provincial assessment and became the first approved Provincial Overseas Economic and Trade Cooperation Park of Weihai. At present, the provincial commerce department is actively applying for the National Overseas industrial park. After being rated as a national park, various supporting policies and preferential policies will be given. As the largest comprehensive commerce and trade exhibition center built by domestic enterprises in Africa, its products and merchants will receive more and more extensive attention.

Huatan overseas warehouse has also been rated as Provincial Overseas warehouse. The company plans to continue to increase investment on hardware equipment, optimizing system network to further improve comprehensive operation efficiency. In addition, the function matching and integration with the warehousing and logistics park of Zanzibar airport under construction are also being refined. After its completion, a comprehensive base with multiple functions such as warehousing, bonded, logistics, processing and packaging will be located on both sides of Tanzania mainland and Zanzibar Island, building a bridge to prosperity and development.

Huatan Company also actively participates in all aspects of Sino-Tanzanian and Sino-African trade and non-governmental friendly cooperation. In 2019, we provided series of services such as local reception, activity arrangement, talks and communication for the global roadshow Tanzania Station of Shandong Provincial Department of Commerce. In the same year, we signed strategic agreements with domestic well-known commodity markets such as Linyi mall, Yantai Sanzhan wholesale trading market and Gaoqiao market in Hunan to help domestic companies and merchants go abroad and explore the African market.

In 2020, Huatan continued to make greater efforts in Sino-Tanzanian economic and trade cooperation. Huatan was entrusted by the Tanzania Trade Development Authority and the Embassy to China to participate in the 3rd Shanghai China International Import Expo (CIIE) displaying Tanzanian products and publicize the projects in Tanzania. During this period, Zhang Haibo, secretary of Weihai Municipal Party Committee and Mr. Kairuki, Tanzanian Ambassador to China visited the booth and expressed their affirmation and support for Huatan's efforts to promote Sino-Tanzanian economic and trade cooperation. In November 2020, Huatan was invited to participate in Shandong Cross-Border E-Commerce Ecosystem Summit, and reached pilot cooperation with a number of large-scale trade markets in Shandong province to help domestic enterprises explore the African market through our platform.

In 2021, Huatan company continued to pursue higher development and made fruitful achievements. SABASABA trade fair held in July every year is the largest and most famous comprehensive exhibition in Tanzania, which has dominant influence in Africa. With the support of the Shandong Provincial Department of Commerce, Huatan organized more than 30 enterprises from Shandong to participate in the trade fair, which produced sensational effects. Many local mainstream media made extensive reports on this. During the exhibition period, Huatan's subsidiary in Tanzania signed a strategic cooperation agreement with the Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (TCCIA) to jointly promote Tanzanian products entering the Chinese market. Besides, Huatan was entrusted by relevant Tanzanian authorities to represent Tanzanian enterprises to participate in the 2nd China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo and the 4th Shanghai China International Import Expo (CIIE), under the principle of mutual benefit and win-win, to attract partners from all walks of life.

In 2022, Huatan made further progress. Since the success of last year's SABASABA exhibition, the Shandong Provincial Department of Commerce upgraded the overseas exhibition to be A-class standard exhibition. This year we organized a larger scale of more than 50 enterprises from Shandong province to participate in the exhibition on a broader scale and with a brand-new look. In China, Huatan was entrusted again by the Tanzanian Trade Development Authority (TANTRADE) and the Tanzania Embassy in China to participate in the fifth China International Import Expo (CIIE) on behalf of Tanzanian enterprises. Meanwhile, Tanzania was invited as the guest of honor of the third Hunan (Yueyang) Port Economic and Trade Expo and Huatan participated in the expo on behalf of Tanzania, bringing hundreds of African commodities to China and promoting the trade between China and Tanzania. In addition, the first ripe soybeans planted in Shandong (Tanzania) Agricultural Products Industrial Park were harvested in the summer of 2022. Other agricultural products are also growing well and ready for harvest. In the second half of 2022, Huatan independently held a series of large-scale commercial activities such as Tanzania Recommendation Exhibitions on agricultural machinery and equipment, East Africa All-category Commodities Fair in Tanzania.

Looking ahead to 2023, we’re embarking on a new journey from a new starting point. As China and Tanzania elevated the bilateral relations to a comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership, Huatan will seize the opportunity to accelerate the construction of the comprehensive service zone of the East Africa Commercial and Logistics Industrial Park and to further improve supporting facilities and functions so as to build a new China-Africa trade ecology, striving to upgrade to a national-level overseas economic and trade cooperation zone and open up a new chapter of China-Africa cooperation.
