The GSR is ITU-D's flagship initiative to promote an enabling environment by fostering dialogue between regulators and
ICT stakeholders. It provides a unique venue for regulators and policy-makers from around the world to exchange views
and experiences. At the GSR over the last four years, the community of telecommunication regulators endorsed a set of
best practice guidelines for an enabling environment, which are used by countries to promote effective regulation. ITU-D
holds regular regional Forums on Telecommunications and ICT Regulation.
