He commented that: “While we strive for a self-sufficient Tanzania, no country is an island and we must all work together. As our world becomes more connected, we face new challenges of the 21st century, such as climate change and the threats of digital technology and emerging diseases “. The Ambassador added that: “These issues can only be addressed through collaboration, cooperation, and mutual respect. That is why we, the American people, and the United States government are committed to working hand in hand with our Tanzanian colleagues. in government, civil society and the private sector to face today’s challenges, for a better tomorrow. “

Dr. Wright revealed that there is no better evidence for this mindset today than the joint efforts of USAID and the Tanzanian government to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. “To date, USAID and the State Department have provided more than US $ 9.8 billion to combat COVID-19 in more than 120 countries.” In Tanzania, the United States government has donated more than 1.5 million vaccines and USAID has contributed more than US $ 25 million to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic, ”stated the Ambassador.

USAID Mission Director Ms. Veeraya Somvongsiri noted that the United States and Tanzania have had a long-standing partnership, which she was confident will continue for generations to come. “We strongly believe in helping countries around the world become more self-reliant. But self-reliance is not an end in itself. This world will only prosper through mutual support. Every nation can be stronger when we help each other.” Ms. Somvongsiri pointed out.

They expressed the United States’ commitment to continue to work closely with the government and people of Tanzania to improve the lives and opportunities of people in both countries, as it has been doing for the past 60 years.
