Hanoi, 25-26 November 2010
On 25-26 November, the OECD co-organised, together with the Government of Viet Nam, an ASEAN-OECD Workshop on Regulatory Reform: Regulatory Reform towards Socio-Economic Development. The workshop was undertaken in the context of the Viet Nam’s Chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in 2010. The OECD Resolution on Enlargement and Enhanced Engagement, adopted by the OECD Council Meeting at Ministerial Level (MCM) in 2007, identified Southeast Asia as a region of strategic priority interest for the Organisation.
The workshop provided the opportunity for political leaders, senior officials and distinguished experts active in the field to discuss how to make best use of regulatory instruments in support of growth, economic performance, development and other national priorities. In today's economic environment, where many governments are struggling with the recovery, regulation is more than ever in the spotlight. Policymakers face challenges as to what to regulate, when and for whom. These extend to every area of the policy debate and attract attention from citizens, businesses and civil society at large.
