EU Relations with Tanzania

TanzaniaTanzania

EU-Tanzania relations have evolved around historical links and decades-long traditions of development cooperation, but are dynamically expanding into areas of trade and investment, as well as partnership in regional political and security agendas. Peace and stability along the shores of the Western Indian Ocean and in the African Great Lakes region are shared foreign policy priorities. 

The EU's main objectives concerning Tanzania are:

  • To support Tanzania's further political and social democratization;
  • To advocate for a pro-poor growth agenda and for an improving economic governance and business climate; and
  • To encourage Tanzania's proactive involvement in regional economic integration processes as well as political and security initiatives that contribute to the consolidation of peace and democracy in the region;

The EU and Tanzania are engaged in a long standing partnership to promote social and economic development in the country. The National Indicative Programme agreed between the EU and Tanzania for 2014-2020 foresees funding worth € 626m for general budget support, energy and sustainable agriculture. Political and sectoral policy dialogues underpin development assistance and provide fora for discussing respective policy priorities and reform agendas.  

Tanzania, with the other members of the East African Community in a bloc, initialled an Economic Partnership Agreement with the EU in October 2014.
