The goal of Tradex Corporation is to set up a better two-way trading link between Europe and East Africa. We cannot achieve this goal alone. We therefore work with several great partners around the world.

Tanzania Medicines & Medical Devices Authority (TMDA) / Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS)
Products exported from Europe to Tanzania must meet high requirements in the field of product safety. These are prescribed by the Tanzania Medicines & Medical Devices Authority (TMDA) and/or the Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS). In recent years, Tradex Corporation has established a good relationship with both these organisations. This allows us to register products quickly and easily.
University of Dar es Salaam
At the end of 2021, Tradex Corporation and the University of Dar es Salaam signed a Memorandum of Understanding. Based on this, it was agreed that students would contribute to the further development of the Smart Hub concept in Tanzania through graduation projects and research.
Students are thus able to convert their theoretical knowledge into practical applications, based on challenging research questions within their field of study. In this way, they can support Tradex in market research, sales programmes and the mapping of local business opportunities.
