Statistics shows that companies under METL are contributing an aggregate 2% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Tanzania and also employing 20,000 people.
It is a startling claim. METL is Mohammed Enterprises Limited, headed up by Mohammed Dewji MP. The claim is on his main website, not the blog mentioned below. Startling but believable as you drive past mile after mile of METL sisal plantations.
