First and foremost was struggle for independence from colonialism.

In 1964 Tanganyika and Zanzibar united and became The United Republic of Tanzania. Later in 1967 it adopted the Arusha Declaration with the aim of placing ownership of major means of production under the control of the people and to build an egalitarian and self reliant society undelying principles of socialism and self reliance. 

During the past fifty years of independence, Tanzania Mainland has succeeded in building the basis for a strong, stable and sustainable economy.The growth of the economy and increase in revenue collection has enabled the Government to expand and improve the quality of social services such as education , health, human settleement and water which are now available to people.

The country managed to construct all weather roads connecting all regions in the country, expand  the railway network including the construction  of the Uhuru Railway (TAZARA).
