Date: February 17th 2021
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Venue: Microsoft Teams
The objective is to examine economic regulatory policies and related topical issues for informed policy making in Kenya. Economic policies and regulations affect the economy at macro-level and micro-level. At the macro-level, economic regulations have the potential of altering the economic structure; while at micro-level, economic agents are likely to experience welfare gains or losses emanating from policy regulations. Ultimately this results in improvement or reduction of individual welfare. A different regulatory framework affects competition in the provision of goods and services within a sector.
