Friday 4 January 2013 | 22:06 CET | News

The Tanzanian government plans to reduce Value Added Tax (VAT) on mobile handsets to improve the country's communications sector and the economy. Director General of the Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority (TCRA), John Nkoma, said tax would also be reduced on computers, the Daily News reported.

Meanwhile, Nkoma has asked TV stations that have not switched to digital broadcasting to do so as soon as possible. The government switched from analogue transmission to digital technology in Dar es Salaam, the country's business capital, on 31 December 2012. The process will be done in other regions this year. Nkoma has also asked the public to ensure their decoders are installed properly.
