The role of political diplomacy has been transformed to economic diplomacy. Diplomacy has shifted from mere political relations and foreign aid to trade, tourism, investment, joint ventures and employment generation. 

The Embassy of Tanzania has over the past 5 years been seeing an increasing strategic alliances and cooperation between its countries of accreditation, companies and individuals which are based on economic interest rather than political gain.

The Embassy role has therefore shifted from only maintaining political relations to promoting business and investment between Tanzania and the Nordic countries and Baltic States.

This page briefly shows events, activities, meetings and visits which implement Economic Diplomacy.
