The East African fi rm of Cooper Brothers and Company was formed in 1947 being an amalgamation of two existing fi rms, the oldest of which fi rst opened offi ces in Dar es Salaam in 1925. Mergers resulted in changes of name to Coopers & Lybrand (in 1957) and then PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) (in 1998). As at December 2016 PwC Tanzania had 7 partners and over 230 staff working from offi ces in Dar es Salaam and Arusha, including close to 40 new graduates taken on during 2016. Apart from the training received whilst working with the fi rm in Tanzania, we also develop our people by deployment on secondment overseas - for example, during 2016 we had several Tanzanians working on long term secondments in other PwC offi ces (both elsewhere in Africa and in Europe).
