Strategic Location

The country’s geography is greatly beneficial. It is connected directly to the Indian Ocean giving it trade links to Asia and sits in between the ocean and 6 landlocked countries (Uganda, DRC, Rwanda, Burundi, Zambia and Malawi) that rely on Tanzania for passage of goods. The country has 3 deep water ports (Dar es Salaam, Tanga and Mtwara) that are ervicing the neighbouring countries. Furthermore, its membership to the SADC Free Trade Area and EAC Common Market, with developed rail and road networks, makes Tanzania a natural transportation gateway for East and Central Africa.
