GIZ Tanzania Branch

Germany has been engaged in international cooperation with Tanzania since 1975. It opened an office in Dar es Salaam in 1982. Currently 141 national and 40 international employees, seven integrated specialists and seven development workers are working in the country (as of 31.12.2018). They work with local project partners and, at the regional level, with the East African Community (EAC), which is based in Arusha.

With a population of around 50 million, Tanzania is one of the most populous countries in sub-Saharan Africa. It has generally pursued a peaceful and politically stable development trajectory since gaining independence in 1964. Over the past five years, its economy has grown steadily at an average rate of 7%.

However, exploitation of gas and other mineral resources is still at an early stage. In the current Five Year Development Plan (2016–2021), the Government is prioritising the rapid expansion of infrastructure and the manufacturing industry, thus enabling Tanzania to make the transition to middle-income country status.
Challenges include utilising this economic restructuring to bring about sustainable improvements in living conditions for the Tanzanian people by reducing poverty and boosting employment.

German-Tanzanian cooperation focuses on the following priority areas:
