    I do not understand the phrase underlined. "Embark on" needs an object.

    Market regulation means "control of the market in terms of price and striking a balance between demand and supply". Please tell me if the phrase is incorrect.

    I don't have trouble with the first part, in business talk.

    "When demand for beef starts to grow while supply is low, we intervene/intercede in the market by importing beef to stabilize prices."

    Do you find the usage of the phrase in the origin incorrect?

    "Regulation" in "market regulation" tends to be ambiguous in the context as it implies the other meaning of regulation, which is about rules, even though it refers to the controlling of prices.

    "Market regulation" is not necessarily wrong. But the sentence, "We regulate the market for market regulation" is. "We intervene in the market for market regulation" is also bad writing, because intervening in the market is market regulation.
