The Botswana Institute for Development Policy Analysis (BIDPA) held a seminar to launch a new book titled "Industry Regulation in Botswana". The Book has Dr Gape Kaboyakgosi, Dr Margaret Sengwaketse and Dr Tachilisa Balule as editors. The book is a collection of case studies on the media, the legal profession, the retirement funds, construction industries, and regulatory accountability. These case studies reveal several insights about using regulation, and that Botswana Regulation is highly state centred, largely mimics competition, engenders multiple accountability measures, and emphasises consensus more than punishment.

Giving welcome remarks on behalf of BIDPA Executive Director, the Progrmamme Coordinator at the Institute Mr Kedikilwe Maroba said that the book assesses one of the most important developments in the public policy sphere in recent years. He underscored the fact that the growing use of regulation has implications on democracy, governance, equity, efficiency, accountability and the globalization of public policy.
