This session will discuss the rational “Government regulations can have both positive and 
negative effects on the innovation process”. Among other goals, regulatory reform in African 
countries should be intended to enhance the positive regulatory effects on innovation. Reforms 
should help ensure that regulations in all spheres of activity are fully responsive to changes in the 
economic, social and technical conditions surrounding them. The regulatory process must 
consider the effects of regulation on innovation as well as the implications of technical change 
for the rationale and design of regulation. 

The regulation/innovation interface is mutual and dynamic; an understanding of this interface is 
crucial to regulatory reform efforts. The Government, Academia and the private sector should 
explore the diverse and complicated links between regulation and innovation. Regulation and 
regulatory reform can affect technological development in sectors ranging from biotechnology to 
banking and can influence the innovation process from research through technology diffusion.
