Regulatory Reforms

We support policy makers in crafting and implementing balanced, transparent regulations on competition, investment, consumer protection and selected economic sectors.

Regulatory issues are increasingly important to deal with to ensure sustained and sustainable growth and development. Balanced, transparent and well-crafted regulations in all spheres of economic activity can provide an enabling environment for overall growth and development. They can also accommodate social and environmental concerns and other public policy objectives.

However, crafting the regulations is not enough: there should also be institutional, technical and human capacity for their effective implementation.

This is why we support policy makers in crafting and implementing balanced, transparent regulations on competition, investment, consumer protection and selected economic sectors. CUTS International, Geneva builds on the vast experience of the family of CUTS organizations in designing, promoting and helping the implementation of reforms in developing countries.

In Geneva, we sensitise negotiators to the implications of their negotiated agreements on national reforms. We also bring environmental and safety standards to the attention of policy makers.
