Smart Regulation for a Broadband World

List of participants of GSR11


GSR11 best practice guidelines now available!

The advent of broadband has significantly changed the way we communicate, access information, share experiences and knowledge, make business and interact with each other. The impact of broadband on the economy is increasingly being acknowledged. Sound broadband strategies and plans are now needed to ensure that all citizens can benefit from the new applications, services and businesses opportunities brought by a broadband world.

Participants in the 11th Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR) and the 4th Global Industry Leaders’ Forum (GILF) will examine smart regulatory measures regulators can take to achieve broadband for all, foster innovation, and address the complexities and challenges of the broadband ecosystem.

Since its launch in 2000, the GSR has brought together heads of national regulatory authorities from both developed and developing countries and has earned a reputation as the global annual venue for regulators to share their views and experiences. The meeting fosters an open dialogue between the worldwide community of regulators and key ICT stakeholders: the private sector, investors and consumers.

To foster a more dynamic and “open-dialogue” among GSR and GILF participants, regulators and policy makers are invited to join industry participants on the GILF panels. The GILF provides a neutral platform for ITU-D Sector Members to share their views on major issues facing the ICT sector.

Both events are organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), in collaboration with the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies and the Communications Regulatory Commission of Colombia (CRC). The GSR will be chaired by Mr Cristhian Lizcano Ortíz, Executive Director of CRC.

ITU has established an online, interactive attendee list to facilitate networking in the lead up to and during GSR11, while preserving data privacy. This service is also accessible by mobile devices as well.
