TMG Press Release

Arlington, VA – In conjunction with the 2023 Global Symposium for Regulators, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) recently published two TMG-authored case studies examining approaches to digital transformation and collaborative regulation. TMG developed the two case studies, focusing on Egypt and Kenya, through a combination of desk research, data from the ITU and local officials, and interviews with stakeholders. The ITU notes that the case studies “provide an authoritative analysis of the national regulatory landscape and outline a clear and practical direction for achieving G5 regulation and digital transformation.”
The Egypt and Kenya case studies consider both countries’ institutional arrangements in the ICT sector and across related economic sectors, key ICT sector and cross-sector policies, collaborative practices across institutions, and regulatory tools to promote the digital economy and transformation. TMG’s analysis also considers the two countries’ level of regulatory maturity and policy implementation. TMG employed a similar approach when developing the collaborative regulation case study on Saudi Arabia, which was published in 2022. Each of the case studies note the policies and strategies employed to realize the full potential of digital transformation. Their development took into account the ongoing collaboration among government, regulatory, and industry stakeholders to develop agile, effective regulation that promotes investment and innovation.
The ITU includes the Egypt and Kenya case studies among its growing library of digital regulation publications. These include the Digital Regulation Handbook, to which TMG contributed chapters on regulatory governance and independence, access for all, and spectrum management.
