U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris Saturday congratulated Tanzania’s new president Samia Suluhu Hassan, the first woman to hold that office.


Through a posting tweet, Vice President Kamala Harris said that the United States was ready to strengthen ties between the two countries.



Hassan, who had been vice president since 2015, on Friday urged the country to unite.

The U.S. Trade Representative’s office is leading U.S. efforts to forge a new trade and investment partnership with the East African Community, a regional organization that includes Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda.

Total trade between the two countries was $462 million in 2019. U.S. foreign direct investment (FDI) in Tanzania was $1.5 billion in 2019, a 5.2% increase from 2018, according to U.S. government data.
