$600,000 injected in digitalizing licensing and inspection services
In 2017, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development reported that tariffs, on tradeable goods and services, between the developed states averaged at 1.2%.
This is low compared to the average tariffs, on tradeable goods and services, between African countries, which stand at 8%. Moreover, tariffs remain relatively high in important sectors, including agriculture, apparel, textiles and leather products.
Unfortunately, these high tariffs make it easier for African countries to trade with Europe and the United States than to trade with each other.
