    On March 19, 2023 Samia Suluhu marked her second anniversary as President of Tanzania.

    For the past two years, she has made efforts towards advancing gender equality. For instance, she created the Ministry of Community Development, Gender, Women and Special Groups to oversee empowerment of women and girls.

    In 2021, during the Generation Equality Forum held in Paris, France, President Suluhu committed to various gender-responsive programmes. Ms Suluhu, who was then represented by Vice-President Philip Mpango, said her administration would adopt innovative approaches, such as electronic payment platforms, virtual savings and credit supply platforms, to enhance inclusion of women in financial services.
