Financial sector reforms in bank regulations and supervision and its impact on service quality of Commercial Banks in Tanzania
This paper examines the impact of financial sector reforms in bank regulations and supervision on competitiveness of commercial banks in Tanzania in respect of economic efficiency. Data were collected from bank customers and bank officials from thirty two commercial banks in Tanzania that were already registered by the Bank of Tanzania by the end year 2010. Self-administered questionnaires were distributed to 1600 customers and 184 bank officials. Results show that there is negative relationship between reforms on banking regulations and economic efficiency leading to conclude that the level of competitiveness of commercial banks has not been impacted by the financial sector reforms.
