Key Findings


Conclusions l.jpg
Conclusions

  • All the developing countries’ characteristics have to some extent an influence on the regulatory factors

  • “Absence of well developed accounting and auditing systems” has the highest influence

  • Small scaled economies: lack of regulatory expertise


Recommendations l.jpg
Recommendations

  • Combine powers and to jointly seek for solutions

    • Harmonization of regulatory policies
