Karibu! Welcome to our new website. I hope you find it informative and useful. We would welcome your feedback.

I am very fortunate to be High Commissioner to the United Republic of Tanzania, a country with which the UK has such a strong partnership. We have close government to government, trade and investment, development cooperation and people to people links.

I arrived in February 2013 and was immediately struck by the warmth of the welcome I received. British people I’ve met who have lived in Tanzania have kept a special sense of connection with the people and the country and they keep coming back.

I am greatly looking forward to learning about Tanzania and travelling as widely as possible. Tanzania is a country of great potential. I look forward to working to further strengthen our political and economic relations and achieve our shared prosperity and security objectives, including in the wider region.
