Historical Review of China-Tanzania Relations

 World Politics Review published on 3 March 2023 an analysis titled "Tanzania and China's Upgraded Relations Aren't as Solid as They Seem" by Alex White, University of Cambridge.

During a visit to Beijing in November 2022, Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan and Xi Jinping announced the formation of a "comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership."  The author suggests the declaration marked an important turning point in relations between China and Tanzania but could also open up new challenges that might further expose the limitations of Beijing's historical personalized diplomacy in the country.
