Situated in the Indian Ocean, Zanzibar comprises a group of islands and is an integral part of Tanzania, boasting an area of 1,554 square kilometers and a population exceeding 800,000.
The historical Zanzibar Revolution occurred on January 12, 1964, leading to the overthrow of the Arab government by the majority of the black population on the island. Subsequently, Zanzibar and Tanganyika merged to form the United Republic of Tanzania.
The relationship between Rwanda and Tanzania encompasses various sectors, with a significant focus on trade. Rwandans frequently utilize the port of Dar es Salaam, and Rwandan products find their way to the Tanzanian market.
Cooperation extends beyond trade to areas such as technology, communication, the movement of people and goods, education, and the regulation of medicines, reflecting a robust partnership between Rwanda and Tanzania.
