On behalf of President Trump and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Tanzania as you celebrate the 54th anniversary of the United Republic of Tanzania.

Over the past five decades, Tanzania and the United States have been good friends and partners, working closely with each other on many life-saving and life-changing programs and initiatives.  Our cooperation has enjoyed many successes. In the past, by working collaboratively, we have made important progress, and we look forward to our continued efforts to meet the challenges of a new year.

As Tanzanians gather to celebrate Union Day, I send my best wishes to the Tanzanian people that they will continue to reap the benefits of a nation working towards a more peaceful and prosperous world.
