To promote liberalization of the Philippine telecommunications sector, the Manila National Telecommunications Commission requested guidance from Nathan Associates. Nathan’s team reviewed the regulatory framework and relevant aspects of the Philippines Telecommunications Policy Act of 1995 with an eye toward fostering increased competition.
Nathan identified legal and regulatory obstacles to competition, analyzed which policies and regulations could further economic reform, and assisted in drafting and implementing recommended reforms. Nathan provided this assistance as part of the U.S. Agency for International Development?s Economic Modernization through Efficient Reforms and Government Enhancement (EMERGE) project.
