Tanzania Resolves Over 40 Percent Trade Barriers Online

TANZANIA resolved more than 40 per cent of non-tariff barriers (NTB) to trade registered in an online and SMS reporting system last year in efforts to boost intra- regional trade.

TradeMark East Africa Country Director, Dr Josephat Kweka, said that 41.6 per cent of all registered NTBs had been resolved thanks to joint efforts by his organisation, government agencies and civil society organisations.

"Elimination of NTBs has been one of our inspirations," Dr Kweka told reporters at an event to launch TMEA Annual Report in Dar es Salaam.

TMEA supports the Ministry of Industry and Trade and Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture through funding and technical assistance to develop and enhance mechanisms through which NTBs are identified, reported, monitored and eliminated to facilitate an easy flow of trade within Tanzania and East Africa.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade and TCCIA support the online and SMS NTBs reporting system. The project was extended throughout the country to ensure reporting of the NTBs was effective.
