The report provides an overview of the telecommunication regulatory reforms and trends worldwide. Specific regulatory issues are analyzed and compared by region. This report comprises six chapters. The first chapter is dedicated to a general worldwide overview of regulatory trends. Chapters 2-6 address each region (Africa, Americas, Arab States, Asia-Pacific and Europe). All six chapters are focused on new legislation, the rise of regulatory agencies, ownership reforms, competition trends, regulatory matters and regional and international cooperation.




I am delighted to present the first edition of our preliminary report on General Trends in Telecommunication Reform 1998. As we all know, over the past decade and since the publication of the International Telecommunication Union’s (ITU) report on The Changing Telecommunication Environment, much attention has been focused on the rapidly evolving telecommunication industry, in particular the reform of the telecommunication sector: the separation of operational and regulatory functions; the corporatization and privatization of operators; and the liberalization of various market segments.
