Tanzania is a product of the union between two independent states, namely, the Republic of Tanganyika and the Republic of Zanzibar that took place on 26 April 1964. The Tanzanian economy has over the years, evidenced a speedy integration of its economy to the rest of the world, and via a process called globalization.. Globalization can be determined as the process of increasing social, cultural integration, political and economical, whereas effects in addition to national boundaries have a vital factor limiting and influencing all features of national welfare. The action is seen in form of incremented flow of services, ideas and goods and migration of people (ESRF, 2002, Globalization and Tanzania) Globalization is a process of interaction and integration among the people, companies and governments of different nations, a process driven by international trade and investment and aided by information technology. This process has effects on the environment, on culture, on political systems, on economic development and prosperity, and on human physical well being in societies around the world.

General notions have a long history, however talk of “globalism” and “globalization” has mainly arisen since 1980. A clear and precise definition of the global is crucial to advance both knowledge and policy in contemporary society. Globalism in the sense of trans-world connectivity is manifested across multiple areas of social life, including communication, travel, production, markets, money, finance, organization, military, ecology, health, law and consciousness. Notion of globalization as the rise of trans-planetary and super territorial link between people need to be carefully qualified in order to avoid globalist excesses.
