The Tanzania China Friendship Textile Company, located in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, is a textile producer originally founded as Friendship Textile Mills Limited, by the Tanzanian government with assistance from the People's Republic of China during a period of socialism in the former country. It is the first plant in Tanzania built with Chinese aid, and also the largest textile mill in the country.
