All sectors are regulated in some shape or form. The global regulatory environment is becoming ever more complex with new and updated legislation regularly coming into effect. Growing concerns about environmental sustainability and public health are leading governments to increase oversight and regulation. But despite the many social and economic benefits that regulation brings, it may also have unintended side effects.
As countries across Asia develop their own set of regulations, diversity and fragmentation may add a further burden to businesses seeking to tap the region’s potential. Establishing a constructive and open dialogue between policymakers, industry and regulators remains essential to ensure a net positive result. Are regulatory changes effectively addressing policy goals? How do firms navigate regulatory pressures while striving to grow and enhance performance? Where are the opportunities for collaboration between key stakeholders to ensure consistency and promote harmonisation of regulations and market policies?
The FT Business Regulation Forum: Burden or Benefit? will bring together senior industry leaders, regulators, policy-makers and leading experts for a unique, high level discussion on regulatory demands and their impact on industry.
