Regulation needs to lead through volatility sparked by market convergence and disruption. Regulation that aids innovation will help developing countries to power ahead – checking inequality of ICT access and use, as well as of products and services. The Kenya Central Bank, a pioneer of regulatory innovation, has triggered a tsunami across both the financial and the telecom sectors by allowing M-Pesa to deliver digital financial inclusion to millions of the ‘unbanked’. How regulation can power innovation is a key consideration for ICT regulators in their pivotal role of shaping the digital economy of the future.
