Other forums are Government of Tanzania and Trade Unions.The Association represents employers in all sectors of the national economy excluding the civil service. 

ATE is affiliated to several international networks including the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) and the Pan African Employers Confederation (PEC). ATE has good working relationships with the Government represented by the Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office responsible for Policy, Parliament, Labour, Employment, Youth and PWDs, the Trade Union Congress of Tanzania (TUCTA) and other stakeholders.
