The African Trade Policy Centre of the Economic Commission for Africa conducted the digital trade regulatory integration project in 11 African countries to promote digital trade within African countries. The present study analyses and quantifies regulatory restrictiveness that is likely to affect digital trade integration in Africa. The study will inform trade policymaking by African member States and regional organizations and thus promote intraregional trade and Continental Free Trade Area initiatives. The present brief report presents recent developments and the current situation of digital trade regulatory integration in the United Republic of Tanzania. The penetration of mobile phones has grown steadily; mobile penetration is now at 89 per cent, while Internet penetration is at 49 per cent. 1 Massive mobile phone use has led to financial inclusion through mobile money services, thus building more resilient communities. Key findings related to restrictions on digital services trade To assess the degree of restrictiveness in the digital services trade, an in-depth review of policies was conducted as specified under the five pillars of the digital services trade restrictiveness index: infrastructure and connectivity; electronic transactions; payment systems; intellectual property rights; and other barriers.
