ABU DHABI, 19th May, 2020 (WAM) — The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority, TRA, has highlighted an increase in e-commerce activities in the UAE over the past months.
This increase also coincides with an increase in the use of social media on the internet, under the framework the social distancing rules and health measures adopted during the current crisis.
During the previous period, the TRA also supported institutions and individuals in the telecommunications sector, contributing to the continuity of business of all national sectors.
