Following the signing of an Academic Business Partnership Agreement between the Tanzania-Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA) and Copperbelt University (CBU) of Zambia, the CBU-TAZARA Mpika Campus at the TAZARA Training Centre has been made officially operational.
Eng. Ching’andu from the Tanzania-Zambia Railway Authority said: “We are delighted to be signing this agreement, which signals the implementing of the Memorandum of Understanding that we signed in 2017 to provide a framework for establishing a practical training institute that maximises the utilisation of the already existing resources at TAZARA and CBU. I am positive that this agreement will give impetus to our relationship and enable us to harness the knowledge and experience in the railway sector, which we should all apply to the benefit of the institutions and the countries in the region.”
The agreement has begun a unique relationship between the University and the rail industry, creating significant value and opportunities for both parties. The partnership is also an undertaking to position both institutions towards contributing to the African Integrated High Speed Railway Network (AIHSRN) in areas of human capital development and the manufacturing of railway related products.
Professor Ngoma, from Copperbelt University of Zambia said: “I am particularly encouraged by the Southern Africa Railways Association’s welcoming of the partnership and recommendation that other member countries take leaf of our pioneering initiative to make use of the vast knowledge in the railway industry.”
