KARIBUNI Ladies and Gentlemen,
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the official WEBSITE of the Embassy of the United Republic of Tanzania in Berlin. This WEBSITE is intended to serve as a continuous source of information on Tanzania as a country of unfolding and unlimited opportunities for business, investment, tourism and for those interested in Tanzania in general.
Tanzania is currently reforming its economy and restructuring its institutions. Together with these economic reforms are the necessary political reforms aimed at making the management of economic reforms effective. As a result of these reforms, a solid macro economic foundation has been laid down upon which a stable environment for the growth and expansion of the economy is taking place. For example, our current inflation rate has gone below 10% and our annual economic growth rate has already reached 7%. The aim is to have a higher growth rate in the near future with your active participation as business interests or investors. We are therefore reaching out to you with the intention to encourage you to consider Tanzania, this peaceful and stable country, as your future business partner and your safe investment destination.
A new investment climate has been established. A new law providing for the protection of investment and other interests is already in force, with all the assurances and advantages an investor needs. For German and Swiss potential investors the bilateral agreements signed between Tanzania and the Federal Republic of Germany; and between Tanzania and the Swiss Confederation, in 1965 and 1966 respectively, guarantee them the right of establishment and protection of their property. There is on a whole a national legal regime for the protection of investors’ interests. At the international level, Tanzania has made its commitments relating to the protection of foreign investors.
There is no doubt that Tanzania is the “Jewel” in tourism. There are ample opportunities for investors in tourism. Tanzania is a tourist paradise and this WEBSITE intends to encourage and invite as many people as possible, wishing not only to see, but also to climb the snow peaked Kilimanjaro which wholly lies within Tanzanian Territory. The great Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater (which is considered one of the wonders of the world), the Selous Game Reserve (the largest in Africa and the second largest in the world), the Islands of Zanzibar and Pemba, the rich flora and fauna found in the world heritage areas in Tanzania, are there for everybody to visit and view, or for nature lovers to study and satisfy their scientific thirst.
We are however aware that the WEB PAGE will be in certain aspects wanting. We are therefore providing for you a separate page upon which you can formulate your question(s) to us. We shall try to respond to your questions as promptly as we can.
In conclusion, Ladies and Gentlemen let me say;
‘KARIBUNI TANZANIA” and “FURAHIA TANZANIA” through this WEB SITE.
H.E. Mr. Philip Sang'ka Marmo
