- REGIONAL REGULATORY SYMPOSIUM
30th October – 2 November 2006, KIST, Kigali, Rwanda
Regulators are creations of statute. They have policy objectives to fulfil. However, in the execution of their mandates, they face many challenges, both internal (to themselves) and external. At times these challenges compromise their effectiveness. Regulators need to stay focused on their objectives and manage their environment in order to maintain control of the development in the sector and win the support and respect of all the key stakeholders they serve.
This symposium brings together Policymakers, Regulators and Operators to exchange ideas on how they can be effective and respond to challenges they face on a day-to-day basis.
