Secretary of State
The United States proudly joins in celebrating with the people of Tanzania the 55th anniversary of the United Republic of Tanzania. Americans and Tanzanians have worked together on important issues for the prosperity of our peoples throughout the years.
Free, fair, and inclusive elections are the cornerstones of a strong democracy. As the 2020 elections approach, may Tanzania reflect on the role democratic values, including tolerance, play in securing a peaceful and prosperous future.
