Tanzanians should never give up the fight for economic advancement rather they need to always aim for higher achievements, according to the IPP Executive Chairman, Reginald Mengi.
Addressing an alumni evening 2006 of PriceWaterHouseCoopers yesterday in Dar es Salaam, he said with good planning, determination and commitment among staff and management in business organisations best performance was possible.
Mengi, who is a former senior partner of PriceWaterHouseCoopers, said: ’’Significant achievement of any company depends very much on hard work, commitment and co-operation between workers and the management.’’
PriceWaterHouseCoopers has a good record of achievements due to commitment, hard work and co-operation among its staff, he said.
’’When I used to work at the company, we were very united as staff, just like a family,’’ Mengi said.
Tanzanians are capable of running corporate firms professionally, he said, adding that what is required of them is confidence and commitment to make it.
At the firm, he said he started dealing with only two consultants but within a short span of time the number had reached 30.
PriceWaterHouseCoopers Country Director, Leonard Msusa said Mengi was the first Tanzanian to become a senior partner of the firm.
He said the company had restructured itself to gain more achievement.
’’We have local country knowledge, industrial knowledge, investigative experience and international links to provide services that are solutions to business issues,’’ he said.
The firm undertakes investigations, asset recovery, prevention consulting, business review and monitoring, business restructuring and receiverships among other services, he said.
