This article looks at regulatory reform in selected developing countries in Asia and Africa, by making use of the data collected through two existing questionnaire surveys conducted in 2003 and 2007 respectively. It is found that regulatory reform in these countries has not shifted from making ad hoc improvements to regulatory structures to taking a systematic view of regulatory governance and the means of promoting and enhancing it. For regulatory reform to improve regulatory governance, changes should be brought to both formal and informal institutions. Regulatory reform should also be integrated into the general reform of the public administration. © 2010 Taylor & Francis.
