ECONOMIC REGULATIONS

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Economic regulations intervene directly in market decisions such as pricing, competition, market entry, or exit.

Reform aims to increase economic efficiency by reducing barriers to competition and innovation, often through deregulation and use of efficiency-promoting regulation, and by improving regulatory frameworks for market functioning and prudential oversight.
