The intent of the recent re-thinking is not to re-instate the regulations that have been removed or are still in the process of being removed. It is instead to think of introducing smart regulations that will improve efficiency as well as effectiveness and, possibly, equity. The re-thinking is particularly relevant to Asia where governments are in the process of vigorous deregulation, following the 1997 economic crisis, which was widely, blamed on weak or misguided government controls. The problem is, of course, especially acute for the transition economies in the region, which have had to grapple with fundamental redesign of their political-economic system.
The key questions the conference will address are:
When should governments resort to regulation to achieve their policy objectives?
How could regulations be improved in ways that promote efficiency and effectiveness as well as equity?
What are the more notable regulatory achievements and failures in Asia?
