HE Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, President of the United Republic of Tanzania
Chair: Alex Vines OBE, Research Director, Area Studies and International Law; Head, Africa Programme, Chatham House

Overview

Tanzania’s reputation as the sleeping giant of East Africa is shifting, along with its regional and international influence. The government’s ambition to reach middle-income status by 2025 could be supported by recent natural gas finds, but success will depend on ensuring that natural resources are strategically harnessed to ensure inclusive growth. Tanzania’s progress through constitutional reform, the conduct of its 2015 elections, the growth of its institutions and its ability to engage its young population will be determining factors in the country’s future course.

President Kikwete will discuss his vision for a middle-income Tanzania, his country’s regional role and the potential for Tanzania to become a regional hub grounded in strong economic growth and good governance.
