While borderless environment has been one of the sources of global changes, it is argued that the protection of public interests should be strongly maintained. At this point, the role of state in accomodating global changes while still preserving public interests is emergingly important. This is because the role of state in making a positive legislative environment would enable various arms of the state to explore and achive their potential while preserving high standard of operations to protect public interest.
