The Quality BID Award recognizes the commitment to quality of awarded companies from all over the world whose business activities cover the top areas of industrial production and services. Peter Mwenguo, Managing Director, TTB, in accepting the Award in Madrid, stated "TTB has strived to improve the quality of the Tanzania Tourist experience by reviewing all sectors of the industry. In the field of environmental protection, the Hon. Zakia Hamdani Meghji, MP, Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, has introduced special initiatives through the Tanzania National Parks to develop new strategies on environmental issues through launching new educational and training programs for park rangers and staff, tour operators and guides, local populations and school children, as well as the tourists themselves.

Mwenguo also noted that another major step in quality control taken by the Tanzanian government is the construction of a tarmac road on the 77 kilometer stretch of gravel road that leads to three key wildlife parks of Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park. The new asphalt road, funded with the help of a grant from the Japanese Government, is the lifeline for tourism in the Northern circuit and will go a long way to increasing tourist comfort and reducing vehicle operating costs. "This road, which will be completed in three to four years, will be a boost to marketing destination Tanzania," said Mwenguo.

According to Jose E. Prieto, President and CEO of Business Initiative Directions, "TTB, aware of the importance of tourism for the preservation of the environment in the economy of Tanzania in order to protect natural habitats that are an irreplaceable global heritage, fulfils the need for quality control and management of such a significant sector."
