We are excited to share the highlights of AmCham’s 10th Annual Thanksgiving Gala, a day to reflect, appreciate, and indulge in the warmth of family and friends. The evening was graced by the presence of U.S Ambassador to Tanzania, Ambassador Michael Battle and our distinguished Guest of Honor Ambassador Charles Stith Chairman The Pula Group, whose impactful speech resonated with gratitude and a vision for a brighter and future Tanzania.
American Chamber of Commerce in Tanzania was commended for hosting the Thanksgiving dinner, and our Guest of Honor shared profound reflections on the importance of Thanksgiving as a holiday. Ambassador Stith advocated for an International Day of Thanksgiving, emphasizing the connection between gratitude, optimism, and the ability to dream for a better future.
The speech turned towards the progress of Tanzania, recognizing the transformation of Dar es Salaam into a thriving city and acknowledging the country’s journey to becoming a lower middle-income nation.
A significant portion of the Guest of Honor speech was dedicated to the global impact of the Green Energy Revolution, with a call for Tanzania’s involvement in the Minerals Security Partnership (MSP). The importance of the aligned interests of the U.S. and Tanzania was stressed, encouraging a partnership that could bring mutual benefits, job creation, and contribute to Tanzania’s development.
As we reflect on the words shared and the visions set forth, let us carry the spirit of gratitude, hope, and acknowledgment for our sponsors into our future endeavors.
