Tanzania is willing to replicate the successful practices of Bangladesh in a host of public and private service projects, particularly the birth registration system.
Angellah Kairuki, deputy minister for constitutional and legal affairs of Tanzania, said, “I am highly impressed to see 90 percent achievement in birth registration in Bangladesh whereas Tanzania has recorded births of only 6.2 percent of its 44 million population.”

Angellah led a 16-member delegation from April 6-10 to Bangladesh with a key mission to learn how this country has achieved such a high level of success in registering birth.
