Regulatory reform has emerged as an
important policy area in developing countries. For reforms
to be beneficial, regulatory regimes need to be transparent,
coherent, and comprehensive. They must establish appropriate
institutional frameworks and liberalized business
regulations; enforce competition policy and law; and open
external and internal markets to trade and investment. This
report examines the institutional set-up for and use of
regulatory policy instruments in Kenya. It is one of five
reports prepared on countries in East and Southern Africa
(the others are on Zambia, Uganda, Rwanda, and Tanzania).
The report is based on a review of public documents prepared
by the government, donors, and the private sector, and on a
limited number of interviews with key institutions and individuals.
