Dr Donald Mmari had an opportunity to comment on BBC on how Tanzania could soon be  entering into a new Fairtrade deal to sell gold to the UK — the first of its kind in Africa.

The BBC reporter  Tulanana Bohela said that Tanzania’s  hope is that Fairtrade standards will help break the cycle of poverty in the country’s richest region and Dr. Mmari had to give his views on the  impact of the fairtrade on  the local gold brokers.

“Could it force them out of business? Is Fairtrade really a win-win deal? how sustainable is it considering the dominance of large mining companies”? Asked the reporter and below is the link to the programme clip;
