The United Republic of Tanzania was established in 1964 when the sovereign states of Zanzibar and Tanganyika united.
Tanzania encompasses 947,300 km2, which includes 54,337 km2 of inland water. The island of Pemba is roughly 984 km2 and the island of Zanzibar is 1,657 km2. One of the five East African countries, Tanzania is located south of the equator. Mainland Tanzania is situated between the area of Tanganyika, the Great Lakes of Victoria, Nyasa and the Indian Ocean. It boasts roughly 1,400 kilometres of coastline and is bordered by eight countries: the Republic of Uganda, the Republic of Burundi, the Republic of Kenya, the Republic of Rwanda, the Republic of Zambia, the Republic of Malawi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Republic of Mozambique. Due to six of these countries being landlocked, Tanzania provides natural access to the region.
From 2006 to 2014, Tanzania’s GDP increased at an average 6.4%. This growth record has been outstanding. Tanzania ranks among the top 20 fastest-growing world economies and has been above the Sub-Saharan average of 5.2%.
