TDRI Seminar about Advancing Fast Track Regulatory Reform (Guillotine)
On 14 October 2020, Thailand Development Research Institute (TDRI), together with EABC and JFCCT, held a public seminar “Regulatory Guillotine: Economic stimulus by regulatory reform”. More than 90 participants via Facebook livestream and many (including press) attended physically at the TDRI office.
Fast Track Regulatory Reform (Guillotine) is a way to review laws and regulations in Thailand, striving to reduce unnecessary processes or barriers to the establishment and the operation of business in Thailand. The ‘Simple and Smart License” project produced over 1,000 changes, ready for implementation. This appears on the EABC website here
