The GSMA has published research revealing that tax reforms in the mobile sector in Ecuador would significantly benefit the wider economy and promote social inclusion. The EY-authored study entitled "Reforming mobile sector taxation in Ecuador: Unlocking economic and social benefits through tax reform in the mobile sector" forecasts that tax reforms would boost mobile penetration in Ecuador, leading to an increase in employment, and generating higher GDP and tax revenue for the government in the medium term.
