November 13, 2018 | | Research & Reports | Latin America & the Caribbean

Mobile telephone services are playing an increasingly important role in supporting economic growth and social inclusion across the world. Mobile penetration, and specifically 3G and 4G penetration, enhances digital connectivity by expanding internet and broadband access, which in turn facilitates
the reduction of barriers for trade, commerce, communication, service delivery, and human development.

Examples of these benefits are seen in the form of financial inclusion via mobile payment platforms, digitally enabled local entrepreneurship, innovative health and education delivery systems, and growing numbers of e-government initiatives.

This report analyses recent developments and the tax structure in the mobile market of Ecuador, sets out potential options for tax policy reform, and estimates the impacts of these policy options on: the mobile sector, the wider economy and the Government’s fiscal position.
