H.E. Mbelwa Kairuki - Ambassador

Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Tanzania in Beijing which serves to promote Tanzania’s interest in People’s Republic of China. The Embassy is also accredited to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Mongolian People's Republic.

Tanzania is a peaceful and stable country and a home to the world renowned tourism destinations including Mount Kilimanjaro-the roof of Africa, exotic Zanzibar island, and more than sixteen (16) wildlife-rich national parks including Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater, Selous and many more. Indeed Tanzania is blessed with abundant natural resources and very attractive lakes and rivers. Apart from wealth in wildlife land, agriculture and forestry, Tanzania is also very rich in minerals such as tanzanite, diamond, gold, iron, coal, nickel, uranium, oil and natural gas.

Tanzania and China enjoy strong bilateral relations which was laid down by the founding fathers of the two nations, Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere and Abeid Karume on Tanzanian side and Chairman Mao Tse Tung and Premier Zhou Enlai on the Chinese side. Both leaders had common ideologies and visions in building a foundation for economic development of our countries. For decades, Tanzanians and China have worked together to strengthen our friendship and partnership from individuals to governments. Since establishment of Bilateral Relations in 1964 todate, Tanzania has never wavered in her support to the One China policy.

In recent years, China-Tanzania traditional friendship has been glowing with new vitality with our political mutual trust being enhanced continuously, bilateral cooperation in all fields bearing rich fruits and real benefits being delivered to the two peoples. That is why it is by no accident that Tanzania is among the four pilot African countries for the implementation of Production Capacity Cooperation with China. Tanzania is also among the first countries to support the visionary the One Belt, One Road initiative by His Excellency Xi Jinping, the President of People’s Republic of China.

Together with my colleagues at the Embassy, our main agenda is to strengthen further the existing relationship as well as to promote the China-Tanzania comprehensive and cooperative partnership to grow stronger and faster through available mechanisms including FOCAC and One Belt, One Road Initiative.

In order to implement various outcomes of Johannesburg FOCAC Summit as well as ONE BELT, ONE ROAD forum and make active use of the preferential measures provided by China, and to lift the all-round cooperation between Tanzania and China to a new level, the Embassy will continue to closely work with different stakeholders including CPC, the State and Provincial Governments, PLA, Chinese State Owned Enterprises, Universities, Research Institutions, as well as the private sector from China and Tanzania.

The Embassy remain fully committed to construct the comprehensive cooperative partnership featuring mutual benefit and win-win outcome, and to strengthen Tanzania-China relationship as a guiding model of Africa-China relationship.

It is my anticipated hope that this website offers you a window of opportunity to better understand our country, Tanzania, famously referred to as “THE LAND OF KILIMANJARO”.

You are most welcome to visit Tanzania,

You are most welcome to partner with Tanzania.
