Policy and Regulatory

  • ICT Policy & Strategy: Euromena Consulting has extensive experience working with policymakers, regulators and operators in defining their ICT Regulatory Strategies and Agendas. Internal and external stakeholder requirements together with overarching global trends are key factors in formulating policy and regulatory objectives. Subsequently, the defined objectives are cascaded into strategic initiatives, ensuring that all internal (policy objectives or corporate) needs are fully grasped and that regulatory implications are addressed.

 

  • Regulatory Levers Management: Euromena Consulting follows a systematic approach to managing regulatory levers able to shape the ICT sector. We have supported multiple regulatory authorities and telcos to determine their favorable positioning by defining the levers landscape, identifying the various options of each ICT lever and assessing each lever’s potential market impact. Trade-off evaluation allows our clients to understand the implications for market players and rationalize the prioritization of regulatory level management.

 

  • Lobbying Planning & Execution: Euromena Consulting understands that a well-defined regulatory strategic agenda requires the enactment of a comprehensive lobbying plan. A number of external stakeholders are typically involved, varying from decision makers and influencers to implementation leaders and other vertical policymakers. Multiple dynamics should be factored in to define the optimal lobbying plan. Determining the stakeholder negotiation sequence is important in order to create a pragmatic execution timeline and realize tangible benefits. Euromena is well-positioned to support operators in developing lobbying plans, covering everything from setting objectives to tactics and communication activities to best serve corporate interests.
