How TecEx Can Help You Import into Djibouti

Located just east of Ethiopia in the East of Africa, Djibouti is considered part of the Middle East. Since 2018 the government has made ambitious plans to improve Djibouti’s Tech infrastructure and move the country towards expanding its economy and strengthening its position as a logistics and commercial hub in the region.

Backed by the World Bank, Djibouti has planned a mass rollout of digital systems to improve citizens’ access to services and improve tax and customs administration efficiency. Although only slight improvements have been seen since the announcement of these plans, governments continued efforts to improve their technological footprint make this an interesting destination.
