Chairman's report (عربي  |  中文  | English | Espa˝ol |  Franšais  |  Русский)

To fully participate in todayĺs networked society and be part of tomorrowĺs hyper-connected digital world, policy makers and regulators are faced with the challenge of meeting their national broadband goals and adopt appropriate means to further safe digital opportunities and inclusion of all. Implementing their broadband strategies requires them to cooperate with the industry, understand the changes taking place in the market, and adopt innovative regulatory measures and tools taking into consideration the transnational aspects of the digital networked society.


Participants will further share their views on net neutrality, spectrum policies, roaming, cloud computing, online safety with a focus on data protection and privacy, international and regional IP interconnection, public-private-partnerships to foster investment and deployment of broadband NGN networks and more. GSR will open with a high level interactive segment, focusing on transnational regulatory issues in a converged digital era, understanding the changing business dynamics and the role of regulation.


The first two days of GSR, the Global Regulators-Industry Dialogue (GRID, 2-3 October 2012) will be open to regulators, policy makers, ITUľD Sector Members. The third day (4 October 2012) will remain closed to regulators and policy makers.


GSR is organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in collaboration with and hosted by the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka (TRCSL) under the Patronage of His Excellency Mr Mahinda Rajapakksa, President of Sri Lanka. The event will be chaired by Mr Lalith Weeratunga, Chairman, TRCSL. (Host country website for the event)
