Global Symposium for Regulators 2015

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Mind the Digital Gap - Regulatory incentives to achieve digital opportunities

The 15th Global Symposium for Regulators will take place in Libreville, Gabon, from 9 to 11 June 2015. It will be preceded by a series of pre-events on 8 June 2015.

Under the central theme of "Mind the Digital Gap - Regulatory Incentives to achieve digital opportunities", participants will explore ways to ensure that all citizens can benefit from the social and economic opportunities brought by the digital economy. For digital opportunities to fully materialize in today’s increasingly complex and pervasive environment, an adaptive, consultative and innovative approach to regulation is more than ever required. But what kind of regulation is therefore needed to close the digital gap? Regulators, policy makers, industry leaders and other key ICT stakeholders will share their views, engage in interactive discussions and identify best practices moving forward.



Organized by the International Telecommunication union (ITU), in collaboration with the Gabonese Autorité de Régulation des Communications Electroniques et des Postes (ARCEP).
Under the Patronage of His Excellency, Mr Ali Bongo Ondimba, President of the Republic of Gabon.
