Peer reviewers from Kenya and South Africa pose with NBS management and observers from PARIS21, African Union Commission, Southern African Development Commission, East African Community, and Commonwealth Partnership for Technology Management

Kenya and South Africa peer reviewed Tanzania from 7th to 11th November. This is Tanzania's second peer review in a decade, following the peer review in 2007 by Zambia and Ghana.

To date, Tanzania is the first country to be peer reviewed twice. Following the first review, a number of achievements have been recorded including a new Statistics Act approved in 2015 and also the provision of the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) becoming a publicly autonomous institution that was also approved in 2015.
