Nancy Pelosi commended Tanzania to Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete last week for its transparent and proper use of grants (read the full article here).
“Mr. president…rest assured that you have good friends from both the Republican and Democratic camps,” said Ms Pelosi. Mr. Kikwete responded by encouraging more support for Tanzania: “Help us to mobilise US investors to come to Tanzania and exploit many opportunities available in our country, particularly after the support granted through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC).”
Hopefully, that will happen – and the solid relationship between Tanzania and the U.S. will continue to grow. Case in point, Tanzania just opened its new chancery building in Washington, D.C. (1232 22nd Street, NW) and President Kikwete met with President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during his visit to the U.S.
