KPMG International commissioned the Economist Intelligence Unit to write Bringing trust into regulation. The report is based on the following research activities:
The Economist Intelligence Unit conducted a survey, completed in February 2009, of 213 executives who are closely involved with the regulation of current and former utilities. The survey brings together practitioners from both sides of the commercial operator-regulator divide, including 165 respondents from operators and 48 from regulators. All are closely familiar with their organisation's key regulatory relationships, and they hail from five heavily regulated industries—telecommunications, power, water, transport and post. The survey sample is global, with 36 percent of participants based in Europe, 23 percent in North America and 20 percent in Asia-Pacific. A total of 77 respondents—36 percent of the sample—are based in developing countries.
To supplement the survey, the Economist Intelligence Unit conducted a programme of interviews with senior executives of both commercial operators and regulators in the aforementioned industries. We are grateful to the survey participants and interviewees for sharing their valuable time and insights.
