2013 marks yet another milestone for China -Tanzanian relations. The historic two-day state visit from 24th to 25th March, 2013, by H.E. Xi Jinping, the President of the Peoples Republic of China, at the invitation of H.E. Dr. Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, President of the United Republic of Tanzania, underlines the importance of bilateral relations between China and Tanzania.
Accompanied by the First Lady Peng Liyuan, three Deputy Prime Ministers, three Ministers and other high-ranking officials, President Xis visit took place just ten days after he assumed the Presidency. Tanzania feels truly honoured to be the first African country to welcome the new Chinese President onto African soil and see this as an opportunity not only to reflect on our historical ties, but also to promote sustainable development and prosperity of our two nations through closer cooperation. Both China and Tanzania have been implementing a series of socio-economic reforms aimed at promoting growth and improving well-being of their peoples. And while it is true that Chinas economy has grown tremendously and at an extraordinary pace, we believe, Tanzania can draw valuable lessons from Chinas economic progress and stand to achieve greater results from working together with the government and the people of China. Through this high-level visit our two nations agreed to adopt a win-win framework for closer economic collaboration. China, the second largest economy in the world and Tanzania, one of the emerging economies in the world, will closely cooperate in areas such as trade and investment, energy, agro-processing, infrastructure development, information technology, health and culture. Most significantly, China is committed to providing financial support to Tanzania to help advance key sector priority development programmes. This publication is both a reflection of the historic visit by President Xi to Tanzania and a showcase of China-Tanzania relations. It provides an insight into the direction of the China-Tanzania Cooperation and the common aspirations held by both governments for development and prosperity of their people. Contrary to the view of some that the people of China are in Tanzania for natural resources, they are, in fact, reinforcing Tanzanias drive to unlock its economic potential through positioning an alternative model for growth and competitiveness. In this regard, the onus is on the people of Tanzania as individuals and as a nation, to seize this chance and translate it into meaningful socio-economic development gain. Long live China-Tanzanian cooperation! Hon. Bernard Membe (MP) Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation United Republic of Tanzania Dar es Salaam March 2013

Message from H.E. Philip S. Marmo Tanzanias Ambassador to China


It all began during the Ming Dynasty (more than 500 years ago); as historical records testify. Evidence found in the discoveries of Chinese porcelain and iron artifacts in the debris of flourishing East African coastal settlements and towns such as Kilwa; proved that trade relations between East Africa and especially Tanzania and Chinese merchants had an early beginning. Hence it is not by accident that the founding fathers of the two nations (the late Julius Nyerere of Tanzania and late Chairman Mao Ze Dong of the Peoples Republic of China), further cemented the centuries old friendship between people of China and Africa; ascertaining a Chinese old saying that, a bosom friend know no distance. Even living ten thousand miles away, they feel close to each other like neighbours. During the early days of Tanzanias independence and the period of freedom fighting in Southern Africa, China and Tanzania stood together and have since safeguarded their state sovereignties. In recent times, this connection has soared to greater heights. For example, since the first Chinese volunteer doctors and nurses arrived in Tanzania in 1969 to date (2013), close to a thousand of them have served in Tanzania. Similar numbers of Tanzanians have since graduated from Chinese universities and institutions of higher learning. An African Traditional Medicine Research Centre was jointly established by both Tanzania and Chinese scientists at the Muhimbili School of Medicine in Dar es Salaam. Few years ago, at the same Referral and Teaching Hospital, through Chinese financial grant, Tanzania government built a state of the art cardiology and Open Heart Surgery Centre. In the field of agriculture; demonstration farms and centres were established, agricultural implements factory constructed and Urafiki (Friendship) Textile Mills built. The landmark project during those early days was the famous Tanzania Zambia Railway (TAZARA). China accepted the request by both Tanzania and Zambia when the World Bank and developed Western countries turned the project down. This is another living example of Chinas selflessness to Tanzania. In this project China again lived up to the spirit of a friend in need is a friend indeed with respect to Tanzania. Following the formulation of The Forum on China - Africa Cooperation framework of action, Chinese and Tanzania governments granted more open mindset to investment undertakings in our countries. In Tanzania, this enabled more big Chinese companies to embark on mega investments schemes (in collaboration with Tanzania Companies) in such areas as coal and iron ore, mining, exploration, drilling, transportation and processing of natural gas, construction of Fibre Optic IT Infrastructure Backbone, Construction of roads and new port on the basis of Public-Private Partisanship. Between June and December 2012, China Exim Bank made available about 18 billion Yuan (about US$ 3 billion) to finance most of the above projects. During the year 2013, major Chinese Banks namely the China Development Bank and the Agricultural Bank of China, have decided to enter the Tanzania financial markets and collaborate with similar local institutions to provide funding for more potential projects. At the same time, some of the leading banks in Tanzania have established China-Desk in order to facilitate financial transactions for traders and investors from both China and Tanzania. That means traders from China and Tanzania will be able to access banking services in either country without language and exchange rate barriers. We in Tanzania understand that China, like any other country in the world has to pursue policies based on its national interests. And as long as those specific policies do not conflict with our sovereign interest or affect our plans to achieve sustainable development, we cannot find reasons to subscribe to suspicions that theres a negative motive in Chinas increasing interest in Africa and Tanzania in particular.

The Great Bond between China and Tanzania


Message from H.E. Lu Youqing, Chinese Ambassador to the United Republic of Tanzania.
As an old Chinese saying goes, Genuine friends with the same ideals will never feel far away from each other even when separated by seas and mountains. The Chinese and Tanzanian people, although separated by the vast ocean, have enjoyed a strong affiliation that has forged this profound friendship. On the streets of Dar, I will always find warmhearted local People saying nihao (hello in Chinese), and I was also overjoyed to discover that reasonably priced, high quality Chinese products are sold in the Tanzanian markets.. When speaking of China-Tanzania friendship, people are always reminded of the Tanzania-Zambia Railway (TAZARA). In 1965, the per capita GDP of Chinese people was only 100 US dollars, and the total foreign reserve of China was 166 million US dollars. However, Chinese Chairman, Mao Zedong keenly expressed support to President Nyerere s request to build the TAZARA. The scale of this project involved dispatching to Tanzania, more than 50,000 professional engineers and technicians. They worked through tough terrain finally erecting the renowned Uhuru Railway also known as Urafiki Railway. It is with honor that we still commemorate the dozens of Chinese engineers and technicians who sacrificed their precious lives for the common cause. 69 of these martyrs are still buried in the Chinese Experts Cemetery to the southwest of Dar es Salaam city. In 1971, African countries accounted for 26 of the 76 yes votes that reinstated the Peoples Republic of China in the United Nations. The support Africans gave to China was a solidifying factor for both continents generating great excitement among Chinese and African peoples. At the United Nations headquarters, the atmosphere was so exuberant that Dr. Salim Ahmed Salim, then Tanzania Permanent Representative to the United Nations, with other African friends were unable to contain themselves from singing and dancing in celebration. Chairman Mao Zedong once commented with emotion that It is African brothers who carried us into the United Nations. Recent years have witnessed expanding cooperation in political, economic and cultural spheres. Last year, Chinese investments in Tanzania covered agriculture, power, infrastructure, energy, mining, manufacturing and other sectors. At present, China has become Tanzanias largest trading partner and its second largest foreign investor. These investments have created secure employment for more than 80,000 people in Tanzania. Chinese President Xi Jinping paid a successful state visit to Tanzania from 24 to 25 March 2013. During the visit, both leaders reached wide consensus on bilateral relations, international and regional issues of mutual concern and witnessed the signing of cooperation documents covering trade, finance investment, infrastructure, culture and other areas. During his speech at the Nyerere International Conference Center, President Xi Jinping spoke to Africa and stressed the importance of sincerity, real results, affinity and good faith pertaining to China/Africa cooperation. His speech was widely echoed and welcomed by all walks of life in Tanzania and Africa at large. China and Tanzania are inspired by the common purpose, that is: sustainable development. While Chinese people are making unremitting efforts to complete building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and realize the China Dream of the national rejuvenation, Tanzania people are also diligently exploring ways to realize the National Development Vision 2025 which will increase the per capital to 3000 US dollars and realize the Tanzania Dream of being a middle economic income country. Brothers united in mind will be strong enough to overcome all the obstacles. With our joint efforts, ChinaTanzania relationship will witness great strides forward with great momentum in the new era while pursuing their respective development objectives.

Welcoming remarks by H.E. Dr. Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, President of the United Republic of Tanzania, at the official inauguration of the Mwalimu Nyerere International Convention Centre, Dar es salaam, 25 March, 2013
Tanzania will continue to work closely with China bilaterally and multilaterally in pursuit of national and global development goals of common interest.
H.E. Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete

Mr. President; Your visit to Tanzania will further consolidate and advance the long-standing friendship and cooperation between Tanzania and China, built on a very solid foundation, by the founding fathers of our two nations, the Late President Mwalimu Julius Nyerere and the Late Chairman Mao Zedong and Premier Chou en Lai. This special affiliation has been further cemented and advanced by the successive generations of leaders in our respective countries and I am glad to emphasize that the efforts of my Predecessors to the Presidency, His Excellency Ali Hassan Mwinyi, and His Excellency Benjamin Mkapa have also greatly nurtured this partnership. Although, Sino-Tanzania relations have faced numerous challenges over the decades, it is the steadfastness of our leaders and peoples of our two countries that has triumphed and sustained our bond and enabled it to grow from strength to strength. The words of Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere in a speech, delivered at the Peking Square in Beijing, during his state visit to China in February 1965 attests this reality: He said: We shall see for ourselves what are Chinas intentions towards us. We shall not be told by others........the fears of others will not affect Tanzanias friendship with China, any more than our friendship with other countries would be affected by what their opponents say of them. Mr. President; Ladies and Gentlemen; China and Tanzanias alliance dates back to 1964 when President Julius Nyerere first established diplomatic relations with China through a visit to the country in February 1965. This was followed by Premier Chou En Lais

Your Excellency, Comrade President Xi Jinping and Madam Peng Liyuan; Excellences; Distinguished Guests; Ladies and Gentlemen;
Once again I heartily welcome you and First Lady Madam Peng Liyuan, to Tanzania. Congratulations on your well-deserved election to the highest office of your great country as Secretary General of the Communist Party of China and most recently President of the Peoples Republic of China. We are very pleased and, greatly humbled that Africa is top of your agenda and that Tanzania was your first African country of choice to visit, since you assumed the Presidency. This is a tribute of Chinas gesture of friendship and solidarity towards Tanzania and we are both excited and anxious to use this occasion effectively to dialogue about opportunities as well as broader matters regarding China-Africa relations.

call to Tanzania in June 1965 and subsequently, Tanzanias support to China to take her rightful seat at the United Nations. All these engagements took place at the height of the Cold War. Forty-eight years later despite the end of the Cold War there are certain quarters who remain apprehensive of Chinas motives in todays world. The words of wisdom by the founding father of our nation still resonate in my mind and the minds of all of us in government and they have informed and guided Tanzanias policy on China for the past five decades. The fact of the matter is that we will always be guided by our own judgment based on Tanzanias best interests. I say this to assure you that Tanzania will continue to work closely with China bilaterally and multilaterally in pursuit of national and global development goals of common interest. Mr. President; Next year, our two countries will celebrate 50 years of our diplomatic relations, friendship and cooperation. Our relationship is excellent based on our mutual understanding and positioning on many bilateral, regional and global issues. Trade and investments have been increasing. Tanzania has received invaluable support and assistance in our development endeavours as has been the case with many African countries. These have made a huge difference in transforming the livelihoods of our people. We will always be grateful and pray for continued support and assistance bilaterally and under FOCAC, which has proved to be a valuable instrument to support Africas development. In this regard we look forward to expansion of areas of cooperation and resource.

African Countries have always been an important foundation for Chinas foreign policy. This will never change, not even when China grows stronger and enjoys a higher international status. China insists on equality among all countries, irrespective of their size, strength and wealth.
Your Excellency; Ladies and Gentlemen; We are gathered here this morning to inaugurate and officially handover the Julius Nyerere Convention Centre built with the support and assistance of the Government and People of China. This is another important milestone in the cooperation and unity between our two nations and peoples. Indeed, it is also quite befitting that this monumental building bears the name of the founding father of Tanzania and of China-Afri-Tanzania relations. The Convention Centre joins the long list of other symbols of Sino-Tanzania friendship and cooperation. These include, among others, the TanzaniaZambia Railway, Urafiki Textiles Mills, the National Stadium and several others which for brevity of time I will not mention. The Julius Nyerere Convention Centre will provide another modern conference facility for Tanzania and will be the first of its kind in Dar es Salaam. It will now be easy for Dar es Salaam to host local and international conferences which require facilities like the ones available at this Convention Centre. I am sure it will also be a source of promoting conference tourism for the City of Dar es Salaam. Allow me, at this juncture to acknowledge and pay homage to your predecessor, His Excellency President Hu Jintao, for accepting my request and making it possible for this magnificent Julius Nyerere Convention Centre to be built. The people of Tanzania will forever cherish this as a mark of true friendship. Your Excellency; Before I conclude let me express my profound gratitude to China for its amicable policy towards Africa. It has worked well and we have no doubt that the people of China will continue to walk with the people of Africa. So far China has been a dependable supporter and ally of African countries and other Third World countries, in their quest for support to their development efforts and plea for a just and equitable world economic order. We are eagerly waiting to hear from you on the policy of your administration towards Africa. It is now my singular honour and pleasure to welcome you to address this audience. Long live China-Tanzania friendship! Long live China - Africa friendship! I thank you for your attention.

H.E. Xi Jinping, President of the Peoples Republic of China, addresses Africa through Tanzania, 25 March 2013
Your Excellency President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Friends,
Habari! Habari! It gives me great pleasure and a feeling of warmth to meet so many friends here at the Julius Nyerere International Convention Centre. This is my first visit to Africa as the Chinese President and my sixth to the African continent. The moment I set foot on this beautiful land, I was impressed by the overwhelming friendship of the Tanzanian people toward the Chinese people. The government and people of Tanzania held a special and grandiose welcoming ceremony. This shows not only the importance accorded to me and my delegation, but also the profound traditional friendship between the two countries and two peoples.

Let me begin by extending, on behalf of the Chinese government and people and in my own name, cordial greetings and best wishes to all the friends present today and the brotherly people of Tanzania and across Africa. I also wish to thank President Kikwete and the Tanzanian government for the thoughtful arrangements you have made for my visit and for your warm hospitality. Tanzania is a cradle of mankind. The Tanzanian people have a glorious tradition and have made major contribution to the victory of the African peoples struggle for national independence and their fight against apartheid. Under the leadership of President Kikwete, Tanzania has maintained political stability, made big strides in national development, and played an important role in African and international affairs. The Chinese people rejoice at what you have achieved and sincerely wish the brotherly people of Tanzania fresh and still greater achievements. Whenever I come to Africa, two things always strike me the most. One is the continuous progress. Each time I come to Africa, I am deeply impressed by the new developments on this continent, which are really encouraging. The other is your overwhelming warmth. The sincere friendship of the African people toward the Chinese people is as warm and unforgettable as the sunshine in Africa. As an African saying goes, A river runs deep because of its sources. The friendly exchanges between China and Africa date a long time. In the 1950s and 60s, the first-generation leaders of New China Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai and others and African statesmen of the older generation ushered in a new epoch in China-Africa relations. Since then, the Chinese and African people have sincerely supported and closely cooperated with each other in the endeavor to fight against colonialism and imperialism and achieve national independence and liberations, and in the pursuit of

national development and national revival. A fraternal bond has been formed in this process, which has seen us through thick and thin. Today, thanks to the concerted efforts of both sides, China-Africa relations have entered a new fast track of all-round development. We have set up the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation and established a new type of strategic partnership. Our cooperation in various fields has produced notable results. In 2012, China-trade approached US$200 billion. There were over 1.5 million mutual visits between the two sides. Chinas cumulative direct investment in Africa topped US$15 billion. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Chinese medical teams in Africa. Over the last half century, 18,000 Chinese medical personnel have worked in Africa, providing medical care and treatment to 250 million local patients. The African people, too, have given full support and selfless help to the Chinese people. When the 2008 Beijing Olympic torch relay came to Dar es Salaam, the Tanzanian people welcomed the Olympic flame with song and dance, as if celebrating their own festival. This jubilant occasion has been etched on the memory of the Chinese. In the wake of the massive earthquake in Chinas Wenchuan, African countries rushed to our assistance. One African country, with a population of less than two million and not well-off itself, made a generous donation of two million euros to the quake area about one euro per person! This outpouring of compassion has warmed the hearts of the Chinese people. In regional and international affairs, too, China and Africa have stepped up coordination and collaboration and effectively upheld the common interests of developing countries. Friendship and cooperation between the people has become a symbol of China-Africa relations and is well received by the international community. Our joint efforts over the past five decades and the fruitful results that they have yielded have laid solid groundwork and provided valuable

experience for furthering China-Africa relations. A review of this period of history shows that China-Africa relations have not grown overnight. Neither is it a gift from someone else. It has been nurtured and built, step by step, by our two sides over the years. These are all solid steps and we have always worked with one heart and one mind and shared weal and woe in this process. As a Chinese saying goes, When we drink water from the well, we should not forget those who dug the well. We shall always honor the memory of all those who have overcome numerous difficulties and devoted themselves to building China-Africa relations. As we move ahead, we can always draw strength from history. A review of this period of history shows that China and Africa have always been a community of shared destinies. Similar historical experiences, common development tasks and shared strategic interests have bound us together. We each view the others development as our own opportunity, and we each seek to promote the others development and prosperity through closer cooperation. A review of this period of history shows that the defining feature of China-Africa relations is sincerity, friendship, mutual respect, equality, mutual benefit and common development. We get on well and treat each other as equals. Neither side seeks to impose ones will on the other. True, China has done its best to help Africas development. Yet China is always grateful to African countries and peoples for the firm support and selfless help given to China over the years. On issues involving the core interests of either side, we have taken a clear position and given unequivocal support to each other. A review of this period of history shows that if we are to maintain the strong vitality of China-Africa relations, we must keep pace with the times and forge ahead in an innovative and enterprising spirit. Over

the past 50 years and more, at every crucial juncture of China-Africa relations, both sides have been able to take a long view, identify new converging interests and growth areas for cooperation, and bring the bilateral relations to new heights. Such an enterprising spirit of finding a way through when confronted by mountains and finding a way to bridge to the other side when blocked by a river is vital to a higher level of China-Africa cooperation. Ladies and Gentlemen, China-Africa relations, blessed with opportune time, favorable conditions and popular support, have reached a new historical starting point today. Africa, a continent of hope and promise, has become one of the fastest growing regions and is forging ahead like a galloping African lion. China, on its part, continues to enjoy sound momentum of development. The foundation of China-Africa cooperation is more solid and cooperation mechanisms have been further improved. Both the Chinese and African people want to push forward their cooperation. Indeed, great ChinaAfrica cooperation represents the trend of the times and the will of the people. Let me make it clear to you, my dear friends, that in the new environment, China-Africa relations have become more important with greater common interests, instead of less important with fewer common interests. Let me assure you that China will intensify, not weaken, its efforts to expand relations with Africa. First, in treating African friends, we stress the importance of sincerity. True friends are the most valuable. China-Africa traditional friendship is precious, which we must cherish all the more dearly. Unity and cooperation with African countries have always been an important foundation for Chinas foreign policy. This will never change, not even when China grows stronger and enjoys a higher international status. China insists on equality

14

15

among all countries, irrespective of their size, strength and wealth. China upholds justice and opposes the practice of the big bullying the small, the strong lording over the weak, and the rich oppressing the poor as well as interference in others internal affairs. China and Africa will continue to support each other on issues involving their core interests and major concerns. China will continue to firmly support African countries just position on regional and international affairs, and safeguard the common interests of developing countries. China will continue to firmly support Africa in its endeavor to independently resolve issues and make greater contribution to peace and security in Africa. There is no one-size-fits-all development model in the world. The diversity of world civilizations and development models should be respected by all. China will continue to firmly support African countries in exploring the development paths that suits their own conditions and increase exchange of governance experience with African countries. This will enable us to draw wisdom from each others time-honored civilizations and development practice, and better promote the common development and prosperity of China and Africa. We in China say that harmony in the family leads to success in everything. Africa is a big family of shared destiny. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the founding Organisation of African Unity, and it is a milestone in the African peoples pursuit of greater strength through unity. We sincerely wish to see Africa take bigger strides on the path of seeking strength from unity and making new achievements in peace and development, and we will firmly support African in this endeavor. China hopes to develop better relations with Africa, and we also hope to see better relations between other countries and Africa. Africa belongs to the African people. In developing relations with Africa, all countries should respect Africas dignity and independence.

Second, in conducting cooperation with Africa, we stress the importance of real results. China both advocates and pursues mutually beneficial cooperation with Africa. China is committed to connecting its development with that of Africa, aligning the interests of the Chinese people with those of the Africa people, and combining Chinas development opportunities with those of Africa. China sincerely hopes to see faster development in African countries and a better life for African people. While developing itself, China has provided support and assistance to African friends to the best of its ability. In recent years, in particular, China has increased assistance to cooperation with Africa. China will keep every commitment it has made to Africa, both in letter and in spirit. China will continue to expand investment and financing cooperation with Africa, follow through on the commitment of providing a US$20 billion credit line to African countries from 2012 to 2015, put into practice the partnership on transnational and trans-regional infrastructural development, enhance mutually beneficial operation in such areas as agriculture and manufacturing, and help African countries turn resource endowment into development strength and achieve independent and sustainable development. As the saying goes, It is more helpful to teach people how to fish than to just give them fish. China will actively implement the African Talents Program, train 30,000 African professionals in various areas and provide 18,000 government scholarships to African students from 2013 to 2015, and increase technology transfer and experience sharing with Africa. With growth in its own economic and overall strength, China will continue to offer, as always, necessary assistance to Africa with no political strings attached. Third, in strengthening China-Africa friendship, we stress the importance of affinity. The Chinese and African people have a natural feeling of

kingship toward each other. We Chinese believe that the pleasure of life lies in having bosom friends. Then how do China and Africa become bosom friends? I believe that in-depth dialogue and concrete action is an essential way to strike a chord in our hearts. The foundation and lifeline of China-Africa relations lie with the people. Therefore, the development of our relations should be more peopleoriented. In recent years, growing China-Africa relations have brought our peoples closer to each other. Some African friends, actively performing in China, have become popular stars in our country. The Chinese TV series, Dou Dou na mama wakwe zake, a big hit in Tanzania, presents to the local audience a true picture of ordinary Chinese families. Let me tell you a story of a young Chinese couple. When they were kids, both the boy and the girl got to know Africa from Chinese TV programs and have since been captivated by this continent. Later, they got married and decided to take Tanzania as their honeymoon destination. So on their first Valentines Day after the wedding, they came here and back packed across this country. They were overwhelmed by the hospitality and friendship of the local people and the magnificent prairie of Serengeti. After the couple went back to China, they posted what they saw and heard in Tanzania on their blog, which received tens of thousands of hits and several hundred comments. This is what they wrote in their blog, We have completely fallen in love with Africa and our hearts will always be with this fascinating land. This story speaks to the natural feeling of kinship between the Chinese and African people. As long as we keep expanding people to-people exchanges, friendship between our peoples will take deep roots and continue to flourish. Looking ahead, we will place greater emphasis on people-to-people and cultural exchanges between China and Africa so as to improve mutual understanding and perception and expand public support for the ChinaAfrica friendship. To develop China-Africa relations is a cause geared

toward the future, which calls for unremitting efforts of youths from generation to generation. Both sides should vigorously promote youth exchange so that China-Africa friendship will be carried forward and remain full of vigor and vitality. Fourth, in resolving problems that may crop up in cooperation, we stress the importance of good faith. China and Africa are both experiencing fast development and each needs to update its knowledge and understanding of the other. China will face squarely and sincerely the developments and new problems confronting our relations. We should properly handle any problem that may arise in a spirit of mutual respect and win-win cooperation. I am convinced that there will always be more opportunities than challenges and more solutions than difficulties. China has worked and will continue to work with African countries to take concrete measures to properly address problems in our economic cooperation and trade, and enable the African countries to gain more benefits from the cooperation. At the same time, we sincerely hope that African countries will facilitate Chinese enterprises and citizens in their cooperation activities in Africa. Ladies and Gentlemen, Since the birth of China more than 60 years ago, particularly since the introduction of reform and opening-up more than 30 years ago, the Communist Party of China has led the Chinese people in blazing a path of socialism with Chinese characteristics. China has made historic progress in its development, becoming the second largest economy in the world. Chinas comprehensive national strength has grown significantly and the peoples living standards have improved markedly. It only took China, a country of over 1.3 billion people, several decades to travel the journey that took developed countries several hundred years. One can imagine how hard and difficult it has been for us to come this far.

16

17

At present, China remains a populous country with a weak economic foundation and uneven development. While our aggregate GDP may be quite large, once divided by 1.3 billion, the per capita number is only around the 90th place in the world. Some 128 million Chinese are still living below the poverty line set by the United Nations. To provide a well-to-do life for over 1.3 billion people, there is a long way to go and persistent and strenuous efforts are still called for. As China continues to develop, its people will surely lead a better life. However, no matter how developed it may become, China will always see African countries as its tested friends. Ladies and Gentlemen, China cannot develop in isolation of the world or Africa. The world and Africa also need China for prosperity and stability. Though separated by

vast oceans, China and Africa share a strong empathy with each other. We are bonded not only by the profound traditional friendship and closely linked interests, but also by the dream we all hold on to. The over 1.3 billion Chinese people are working hard to realize the Chinese dream of national renewal, and the over one billion African people are committed to the African dream of gaining strength from unity and achieving development and rejuvenation. The Chinese and African people should enhance unity, cooperation, mutual support and assistance so as to make our dreams come true. We should also work with the rest of the world to realize the dream of the world for enduring peace and common prosperity, and make new and even greater contribution to the noble cause of peace and development of mankind. Asanteni sana!

President Xis visit took place just ten days after he assumed the Presidency. The President was accompanied by 25 high ranking officials including three Deputy Prime Ministers and three Ministers.

China- Tanzania Bilateral Cooperation on the rise


During President Xi state visit to Tanzania, the two heads of state witnessed the signing of several bilateral agreements that included the three year Economic and Technical Cooperation worth US$800m (Tsh1.8trn) aimed at implementing priority development projects. These funds have come at an opportune time when Tanzania is implementing its five year Development Plan (2011/12 2015/16) and will therefore be crucial in realizing the goals of the plan.

For almost half-a-century, China and Tanzania have cooperated and supported each other on major fronts from political to economic initiatives and this visit highlights the historical dimension of China-Tanzania relations.
In the last five years alone, China has extended to Tanzania grants, concessional and commercial loans amounting to US$ 1,942 million to finance projects in key sectors of the economy. Currently, Chinas projects in Tanzania cover various sectors including construction, ICT infrastructure, agriculture, mining, energy, medical, health and education. Following President Xis visit, the two governments have agreed to broaden and elevate this cooperation to bring sustainable development for their people.

2.1 Trade and Investment Cooperation


Tanzania needs a market for its products. Tanzania needs technology for its development. China is ready to provide all that. What is wrong with that?
Jakaya Kikwete, President of the United Republic of Tanzania.

Opening up trade and participating in the global trading system is fundamental to shaping successful economies. Currently, China is Tanzanias largest trading partner. Bilateral trade between the two countries has grown at an average rate of 15.2 percent a year over the last few years, reaching US$ 2.47 billion in 2012.
Tanzanias Minister for Finance Hon. William Mgimwa and Chinese Minister for Commerce Hon.Gao Hucheng sign an Agreement between the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania and the Government of the Peoples Republic of China concerning the Promotion and Reciprocal Protection of Investments.

Chinas Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) to Tanzania stands at US$ 1,942 (2012) making China, the second largest source of FDI in Tanzania. With the current trend, it is projected that in the coming decade, Chinese investment inflow to Tanzania will reach US$ 50 billion.
As Tanzania envisions becoming a middle-income country by 2025 (Vision 2025), the government knows too well that increased investments will be vital because they have the potential to support efforts to reduce poverty and to bring about sustainable change and development. More investment means, more jobs, access to better technologies and effective participation in the international market. A translation of the fruits of such investment can already be seen in sectors such as construction, retail and real estate.

Under the trade agreement Tanzanians stand to enjoy 95 percent tariffs reduction for the products sold in Chinese markets.

However, there is huge trade imbalance as China exports to Tanzania reached US$ 2.15 billion (2011) while Tanzania exports to China amounted to just over US$ 400 million (2010). The momentous signing of trade agreement, among other things, is aimed at addressing this huge trade imbalance. Under this agreement Tanzania stands to enjoy 95 percent tariffs reduction for the products sold in Chinese markets.

China-Tanzania cooperation is aimed at increasing not just investment in general but also infrastructure development in order to support the level of investment needed to make our economy grow .
Hon. Mary Nagu (MP), Minister of State in the Prime Ministers Office, responsible for Investment and Empowerment.

Consequently, China has for the first time, opened its market for tobacco from Tanzania. This is a great achievement for Tanzania in general and tobacco farmers in particular given the fact that China is the largest market and consumer of tobacco products in the world.

2.2 Infrastructure Development

The government of Tanzania is acutely aware that in order to attain the level of growth needed to reach national development strategies/plans, it should address the countrys economic fundamental shortfalls particularly the state of its infrastructure. Physical infrastructure such as rail and road network, airports and seaports are a pre-requisite for any level of economic development.
Following President Xis visit to Tanzania, China Development Bank (CDB) the largest bank in the world in terms of capital assets (US$16 trillion), has expressed its willingness to issue some US$ 2 billion to Tanzania in the form of middle and long-term loans. The funds are to be used for infrastructure development including building road and rail networks and upgrading airports. An agreement between China and Tanzania to build a state-of-theart seaport in Bagamoyo has been signed. This multi-million dollar proposed port is extremely crucial in enhancing Tanzanias trade competitiveness as it will link the country with the rest of Africa, Europe and Asia. High freight costs have forced shipbuilders to build-large ships-fourth generation- with a capacity to carry 10,000, twenty-foot equivalent units (Teus). However, Tanzanias largest port, Dar es Salaam Port, has neither a room for required expansion for docking of ships of that size, nor the capacity of building necessary complementary economic base. Additionally the port will ease the congestion for Dar es Salaam port.

Hon. William Mgimwa (MP), Minister for Finance United Republic of Tanzania and Dr. Fu Yuning, Chairman of the Board of Merchant Holdings sign the Framework Agreement on the strategic partnership to develop Portside Industrial Zone and Seaport at the Bagamoyo Special Economic Zone in the United Republic of Tanzania. The agreement paves way for China to fund and construct a US$ 10 billion seaport at Bagamoyo as well as the development of the Portside Industrial Zone.

Geographically, Tanzania, which has a population of about 46 million, is to Africa what Singapore is to Asia. Half of Africa can be easily accessed from Tanzania. We want to take advantage of this .
Philip Marmo, Tanzanian Ambassador to China.

2.3 Industrial Development 2.4 Agricultural Cooperation


We want to emulate China, by building a strong manufacturing base and go from just exporting primary goods to processing them .
Ambassador Mbelwa Kairuki

Modernising the agricultural sector presents a major opportunity for Tanzania to achieve a broad-base economic growth. Nearly twothirds of the population in Tanzania depends on agriculture for their livelihoods. The sector contributes close to 27% of the countrys GDP; 30% of total exports; and 65% of raw materials for Tanzanian industries.
Under the Agriculture agreement signed between the two countries, China has for the first time opened its market for tobacco from Tanzania, a great achievement for Tanzania in general and tobacco farmers in particular given the fact that China is the largest market and consumer of tobacco products in the world.
Mr. ZHI Shuping Ministerial Director of AQSIQ and Hon.Chistopher Chiza, Minister for Agriculture and Food Cooperatives sign a Protocol of Phytosanitary Requirements for Tobacco Leaves from Tanzania to China between the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the Peoples Republic of China and the Ministry of Agriculture Food and Cooperatives of the United Republic of Tanzania.

The agreement between China and Tanzania to establish an ultra-modern port in Bagamoyo includes a 50 sq. km industrial zone built next to the port to attract domestic and international investors.

However, Tanzanias agricultural sector is almost entirely driven by smallholder primary production, characterised by the use of hand tools and reliance on traditional rain-fed cropping methods and animal husbandry. While there are about 44 million hectares of land suitable for agriculture, only 23% is utilized. Of the 29.4 million hectares suitable for irrigation, only 289,245 hectares (1%) is irrigated.

Through the China-Tanzania cooperation, the government of Tanzania seeks both technical support and investment. By establishing ties between the major food-producing regions/ provinces from both countries and starting an Agricultural Development Bank, the Tanzanian government envisions seeing farmers move from a subsistence agricultural level to an industrial scale.

2.5 People-to-People Interaction


If only Tanzania could receive five million Chinese tourists from China following the visit of President Xi Jinping, the economy of this country will stand on its feet . Charles Sanga, Former Tanzanian Ambassador to China
An agreement to strengthen cultural ties between China and Tanzania has been signed. China will strengthen cultural ties with Tanzania and expand the and expand the existing Cultural Exchange Programme for Mutual Learning. In the last seven years, the number of Chinese people coming to Tanzania for tourism and business has increased from 4,441 in 2005 to nearly 10,000 in 2012. In the same way, the number of Tanzanians visiting China increased from 4,000 in 2005 to over 7,000 in 2012. Under the current arrangement, Tanzania is looking to attract more tourists from China given the fact that Chinese spend more than US$ 100 billion a year travelling abroad (2012).

2.6 Information and Communication Technologies


Seeing something once is better than hearing about it a hundred times .
Zhou Enlai, Former Chinese Premier one of the first-generation leaders of New China

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) has proven to be a key precondition for enhanced economic competitiveness and societal modernisation.
In Tanzania, ICT has allowed for faster and easier access to information, connecting people and communities, improving learning, enabling traders to reach wider markets, boosting entrepreneurship and generally making it easier to do business particularly small scale business. Many Tanzanians, now see ICT services, such as mobile money transfer, as an essential component of their daily economic activities. Others such as Government institutions, private companies, and academic institutions have made a step towards computerization of their respective work/business processes. However, Tanzanias ICT infrastructure is currently a work-in-progress and more funding will be needed to complete the implementation of the National ICT project, presently in its PHASE III, in order to meet the growing demand. In view of this, the Tanzanian government has successfully secured a Concessional loan from China to help finance part of the Phase III of this project.

Mwalimu. Julius K. Nyerere International Convention Centre


The Mwalimu Julius Nyerere International Convention Centre, named after the founding father of Tanzania and the architect of China Tanzania relations, is yet another towering symbol of a long standing relationship between China and Tanzania.
Built with Chinese assistance, the multi-million dollar ultra-modern Conference Centre is the largest conference building in Dar-es-Salaam. The grand meeting room seats more than a thousand with each seat fully equipped with modern conference facilities including digital audio system and simultaneous interpretation in twelve languages.

President Xi Jinping hands over the symbolic golden key to President Jakaya Kikwete at the official handing over ceremony of the Mwalimu Julius Nyerere International Convention Centre in Dar es Salaam. The multi-billion state-of-the-art Convention Centre has a wide range of conference services, including the man hall with a capacity to seat more than a thousand people.

Remembering the Sacrifice


Nothing more depicts the strong ties between China and Tanzania than Majohe Cemetery on the outskirts of Dar es Salaam. 69 Chinese construction workers gave their lives alongside their 96 Tanzanian and Zambian brothers during the construction of the TanzaniaZambia Railway (TAZARA).

China Zanzibar Cooperation


In 1964, the then Sovereign States of Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged to form the United Republic of Tanzania (URT). Within the Union Act, the Government of Zanzibar retains autonomy over a number of issues including its own political structure and a large degree of fiscal independence. Thus, the Government of Zanzibar has its President, legislature and cabinet ministers for all matters that are not specifically listed as Union Affairs.
In this context, China-Tanzania cooperation takes into account Zanzibars position within the URT. Therefore, there are specific areas of cooperation between China and Zanzibar which concerns only Zanzibar. This covers: economic and technical cooperation, health, education and infrastructure development.

Built in the 1970s, the 1,800-kilometre TAZARA rail link continues to be a symbol of solidarity and support for Tanzanias journey towards economic and political independence. It gave Tanzania a sense of pride and purpose; above all, brought hope for a better future. When Beijing first offered to sponsor the construction of TAZARA in 1965, questions were asked then, just as they are now, about Chinas intentions in Tanzania and Africa. The project came at a time when political affinity was

arguably the main determinant of international relations. Nevertheless, China went ahead and sent more than 50,000 of its experts and technicians to work on the project. Today, nearly four decades later, TAZARA remains a catalyst for socio-economic development in Tanzania and the Southern African region. To the thousands of famers transporting their produce, traders moving their products, a trip on broad TAZARA is not one of leisure but of economic necessity.

H.E. Xi Jinping, President of the Peoples Republic of China, holds a separate meeting with H.E. Dr Ali Mohamed Shein, President of the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar, at the Serena Hotel in Dar es Salaam. In his remarks, President Xi said China is happy to see all the achievements made by Zanzibar to promote its development and pledged that his country will continue to support Zanzibars socio-economic progress by providing assistance within its capability.

China-Africa Policy

What kind of policy will China adopt towards Africa under President Xi Jinping? Will it be any different from the previous Chinese leadership? Will China, under President Xi, be more involved in Africa or less involved?
These were among the questions on the minds of delegates at the Mwalimu Julius Nyerere International Convention Centre. More than 1000 government officials, Parliamentarian, members of the Diplomatic Corps and other invited dignitaries, sat, watched and listened as the Chinese head of state expounded on China-Africa relations and Chinas Africa policy. China is Africas biggest trading partner with total trade volume amounting to US$200 billion between the two sides (2012). Cumulatively, Chinas direct investment in Africa has surpassed US$15 billion. In the past two years alone, China extended loans to African countries, than the World Bank. On practical level, China has made basic goods more affordable to many

African people, and many small and medium enterprises have flourished as a result. This is despite the growing concerns of Africas ability to compete with the Chinese industrial capability. China, according to President Xi, will intensify its efforts to expand relations with Africa without interfering in the internal affairs of African countries. Perhaps most importantly, from an African perspective, is the re-affirmation from the Chinese President that, China will continue to expand investment and financing cooperation within Africa, by maintaining the US$ 20 billion credit line through - The Forum on China Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) - to help African countries turn resource endowment into development strength and achieve independent and sustainable development.
