EC approves Tanzania's biggest ever EU cooperation programme

The European Commission has today formally approved the Annual Action Programme 2009 for the United Republic of Tanzania providing the country with € 385 million in assistance for budget support and infrastructure programmes that will enable pro-poor economic growth. This programme complements the bilateral cooperation programmes of the individual EU Member States. It is the largest ever financial commitment made by the EU in support for Tanzania since EU cooperation first started in 1975.
