In an effort to build business relations with Africa, President of the United States Barack Obama has been in Africa, and on Monday Obama touched down in Tanzania.

His arrival was welcomed with a 21 gun salute where he will met with George W. Bush, together on Tuesday they will lay a wreath to honor those killed in the 1998 embassy bombing in Tanzania.

The White House said the Obama will launch a project in Tanzania, called Trade Africa, with a keen focus on east African trade bloc that has a combined population of 130 million people.

Although growing quickly, economists said Tanzania’s economy could expand faster with reliable power and more internal trade.
