“The digital world will drive regulation. On like what we said before, we are going to engage the industry with our IT guidelines. It is no longer going to be historical reporting, it is going to be reporting as at now. If you tap anybody in the commission, he or she should be able to tell you the transactions in the market in the last four days. That is the objective, that is where we are heading to,” he stated.
