The present report outlines the findings of research on digital trade regulatory integration in Uganda, which was part of a pilot project carried out in 11 African countries by the Economic Commission for Africa through its African Trade Policy Centre. The purpose of the research was to collect data on restrictions on digital services trade on the model of the digital services trade restrictiveness index of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development on the one hand and on digital trade integration on the other hand. The data collected provide insight into developments, regulations and practices affecting digital trade in Uganda. Data on the digital services trade restrictiveness index help to identify regulatory restrictions affecting digital trade regarding: infrastructure and connectivity; electronic transactions; payment systems; intellectual property; and other barriers, such as a commercial presence requirement or restrictions on advertising.
