BRUSSELS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Arthur D. Little (ADL) today announced the global launch of its Strategic Advisory Services for Competition and Regulation (SASCAR). Based in ADL’s Telecommunication, Information, Media and Electronics (TIME) practice, the SASCAR competence center will help define socially and economically appropriate public policy and support telecoms companies, manufacturers, governments and regulators in a global market increasingly dependent on the digital economy.
Enhancing such policies is increasingly urgent in regions where the TIME industry and the economy remain under pressure, as Europe, as well as other parts of the world search for global best practices. In TIME-heavy regions in particular, rapid social and technological changes demand the pursuit of best policy and practice for competition and regulation. These issues urgently need addressing if private and public bodies are to meet their competitiveness, investment and public policy goals.
Andrea Faggiano, newly-appointed Head of the SASCAR competence center, states: “The agenda of a CEO in the TIME industry is becoming more and more occupied by Competition and Regulation, as a permanent stream of complex issues challenges TIME industry players and investors. Significant shifts continue to occur in the value chain. Accordingly, Public and Regulatory Affairs functions are progressively stretched and should shift from compliance functions to strategic units, with the intention of evolving into more pro-active partners of governments and public institutions.”
The new competence center builds on Arthur D. Little’s extensive experience in public policy and regulation matters as a global, trusted, and non-partisan advisor to the international Telecommunication, Media and Technology (TMT) community.
Dr. Karim Taga, Managing Partner and Global Practice Leader of Arthur D. Little’s TIME practice, comments: “The Arthur D. Little TIME practice is very proud to add such an important service line to our core portfolio. Our consultants will work side-by-side with many high-caliber experts in the public policy and regulatory domain that we have invited to join the SASCAR competence center. We have strong and independent opinions and we are eager to further engage our clients with what we believe is a highly relevant value proposition.”
