Executive summary

Efforts at regulatory reform have been made in MENA countries for some years. The relevance of regulatory policy to economic development and social welfare places it as an important tool to support foreign and domestic efforts to create jobs, and to embrace open, inclusive government frameworks. The desire for greater civic engagement and inclusiveness can be seen in many of the countries across the region and ways of better engaging the public are being requested by the public.
