Regulatory Reform in the Middle East and North Africa: Implementing Regulatory Policy Principles to Foster Inclusive Growth


Regulatory Reform in the Middle East and North Africa

The implementation of regulatory policy principles is a driver for change to support transparency, accountability and participation in the MENA region. By assessing the current regulatory environment against the 2009 Regional Charter for Regulatory Quality and the 2012 OECD Recommendation of the Council on Regulatory Policy and Governance, the OECD actively supports MENA’s transition towards more efficient and effective governance arrangements.


This report assesses progress in the implementation of regulatory policy within the region. Regulatory governance in the MENA region is an increasing priority for encouraging and enabling sustainable development and inclusive growth. The report reflects on the developments and highlights good practices from Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritania, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority and Tunisia. The report concludes by providing recommendations to MENA countries, especially those in transition, to help them build the required institutions, systems, policies and capacities to produce a better regulatory environment needed to deliver sustainable development and equitable growth whilst ensuring public participation and accountability.
