Welcome Note from the Head of Delegation



Welcome to the website of the Delegation of European Union to Tanzania and to the East African Community, full of information about today's dynamic partnership between the European Union and Tanzania, which is ready to face the many challenges of the 21st century.

The European Union, its 28 Member States and Tanzania work closely together on a broad range of issues in the political, economic and developmental fields. The European Union is also Tanzania’s leading trade partner and 11 of its 28 Member States have their own Embassy or High Commission here in Dar es Salaam.

Our development cooperation with Tanzania is broad and varied and includes the fields of agriculture, transport, education and macroeconomic support.

Also, our Delegation is responsible for the relations with the institutions of the East African Community (EAC); we fully support the commitment of the people of East Africa to further develop regional integration and regional cooperation.

The Delegation of the European Union consists of 48 highly motivated staff, both European and Tanzanian, as well as a South-African, all working hard in support of an ever increasing cooperation between Tanzania and the European Union.

This year we are also celebrating the 40th anniversary of European Union-Tanzania relations. Please see our booklet (website) celebrating this important occasion.

Enjoy this website, use it to the full and share your views and comments with us!

Karibu Sana!
