Shortly after achieving independence from Britain in the early 1960s, Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged to form the nation of Tanzania in 1964. One-party rule came to an end in 1995 with the first democratic elections held in the country since the 1970s. Zanzibar's semi-autonomous status and popular opposition have led to two contentious elections since 1995, which the ruling party won despite international observers' claims of voting irregularities.

Economic Overview

Tanzania is one of the poorest countries in the world. the economy depends heavily on agriculture, which accounts for more than 40% of gdp, provides 85% of exports, and employs 80% of the work force. topography and climatic conditions, however, limit cultivated crops to only 4% of the land area. industry traditionally featured the processing of agricultural products and light consumer goods. the world bank, the imf, and bilateral donors have provided funds to rehabilitate tanzania's out-of-date economic infrastructure and to alleviate poverty. long-term growth through 2005 featured a pickup in industrial production and a substantial increase in output of minerals led by gold. recent banking reforms have helped increase private-sector growth and investment. continued donor assistance and solid macroeconomic policies supported real gdp growth of nearly 7% in 2007.

Environmental Issues

Soil degradation; deforestation; desertification; destruction of coral reefs threatens marine habitats; recent droughts affected marginal agriculture; wildlife threatened by illegal hunting and trade, especially for ivory

International Disputes

Tanzania still hosts more than a half-million refugees, more than any other african country, mainly from burundi and the democratic republic of the congo, despite the international community's efforts at repatriation; disputes with malawi over the boundary in lake nyasa (lake malawi) and the meandering songwe river remain dormant
