Background of China’s Decision on Assisting the Building of the TAZARA

Geographically, Tanzania was the front-line of the national liberation movement of Sub-Saharan Africa. So, once Tanzania became independent, the Chinese central government attached great importance to this event, and appointed He Ying as the Chinese ambassador to Tanzania. He was assigned the duty not only to develop China’s friendly relations with Tanzania, but also to take the country as a center to make contacts with the countries in eastern and southern part of Africa that were not independent, and support their national liberation movements.
