|DAR ES SALAAM Camo Shaquill Griffin Jersey , July 26 (Xinhua) -- The Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA) said on Wednesday it plans to build a dry port in the east African nation's western region of Kigoma to cater for East Africa and the Great Lakes region.
Morris Nchindiuza, Kigoma region TPA Acting Manager Camo Ethan Pocic Jersey , told a news conference in the port city of Tanga that the project will be among the biggest investments made by the authority in modern times. He did not reveal the cost of the project.
Nchindiuza said TPA has finalized plans for the massive project which will largely serve landlocked countries of Uganda, Burundi and Rwanda Camo Malik McDowell Jersey , the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia.
He said TPA has already disbursed 5.5 million U.S. dollars to compensate 1,228 people who were living in the project area.
Early this month Black Frank Clark Jersey , President John Magufuli launched a project to upgrade the east African nation's largest port in the commercial capital Dar es Salaam.
The Dar es Salaam Maritime Gateway Project (DSMGP) will be undertaken by China Harbour Engineering Construction Company (CHEC), a subsidiary of the state-run China Communications Construction Company Ltd. The project was expected to be completed in 36 months.
Bella Bird Black Rees Odhiambo Jersey , the World Bank Country Director for Tanzania, Malawi Black Jarran Reed Jersey , Burundi and Somalia, said the Dar es Salaam port was vital for the economies of Tanzania and neighboring countries.
She said upgrading of the port will enhance its operational potential and boost trade and job creation across the region.
"The project will also reduce the current cost of 200 to 400 dollars for each additional day of delay for a single consignment Black Germain Ifedi Jersey ," said Bird.
The port of Dar es Salaam currently has 11 berths, with seven of these dedicated to general cargo and four to container operations.
The port handled 13.8 million tons in 2016 up from 13.1 million tons in 2013 and 10.4 million tons in 2011 reflecting an average growth of 9 percent per year over the last five years while recent numbers indicated a slowdown.

PHOENIX， the United States， Dec. 25 (Xinhua) -- The southwestern U.S. state of Arizona embraced a friendly attitude toward self-driving test vehicles， as its governor Doug Ducey personally welcomed the first batch of Uber's fleet arriving here Friday.
The car-hailing service provider has turned its attention to Arizona， after the Department of Motor Vehicles of California， where it was originally headquartered， revoked its autonomous vehicle registration last week. Uber decided last Thursday to have its self-driving cars delivered via a self-driving truck to Phoenix， capital of Arizona， for future pilot tests.
While in Arizona， it seems that the governor is seeking a balance between attracting technology businesses and regulatory issues.
Arizona is popular with companies focusing on self-driving technologies， as the Grand Canyon state has less regulations in this regard. Besides Uber， General Motors (GM)， Google and Ford have chosen Arizona as their self-driving test ground.
Although Ducey had asked the Department of Transportation (ADOT) and the Department of Public Safety to come up with rules and regulations for autonomous vehicles， he emphasized that he saw no reason for any special registration for these cars， or for doing nothing until the task force comes up with relevant rules. He just told local media that these cars were to be insured.
Kevin Biesty， ADOT's deputy director for policy， agreed. He was quoted as saying that he understood that the task force would have to deal with questions ranging from whether those behind the wheel of truly autonomous vehicles need to be licensed to who was legally liable if a computer-driven vehicle speeds or causes damage， but the lack of answers to these questions should not preclude the kind of testing that Uber and other companies want to do on Arizona roads.
He added that the Uber autonomous vehicles in their current stage of development do not need special permission or special rules for testing in Arizona.
He took GM's "advanced cruise control" system， which was first tested in Arizona， as an example， saying this system being installed on many GM vehicles had the ability to change the car's speed to avoid accidents.
According to the local newspaper Arizona Capitol Times， Ducey said that Uber's decision to move to Arizona showed the state was more friendly to businesses than its neighbor to the west.
"The message today is Arizona's open for business. We're welcoming this technology. We're not pushing it out of our state，" the governor said.
As more and more companies develop their self-driving cars， safety issues arise， especially after a driver of a Tesla operating on an automated driving system died of a collision with a truck in Florida in May， America's first fatality concerning the new technology.
In Arizona， Google has been testing its self-driving Lexus SUVs for 4 months， while Ford has been conducting road tests for its self-driving Fusion for nearly two years.

They can be far simpler to control than nitro cars and simple to use. These items function much cleaner Black Amara Darboh Jersey , and are certainly.
