Trias East-Africa and the Tanzania Chamber of Commerce Industry and Agriculture are looking for a competent consultant or consulting firm to conduct a study on cross-border trade. The study is a crucial part of the EU funded programme “Building bridges: evidence-based dialogue through participatory research”. The programme aims to contribute to an improved business environment and higher participation of SMEs and private sector organisations (PSOs) in the realization of the FYDPII. The study is expected to consist of the following elements;
a) Perform an in-depth analysis of the obstacles and opportunities of doing cross border trade and its impact on the industrialization agenda. The study will explore the linkage between cross-border trade and the FYDPII as described in the FYDPII p34-35, and uncover the linkage between the Tanzanian industrial policy and trade policy (FYDPII p.31).
b) Identify opportunities for regional integration, regional trade and comparative advantages between Tanzania and its neighboring countries.
c) Identify practical issues that traders encounter when importing or exporting goods and services and provide recommendations for improvement
