Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR-17)

​​​​​​Living in a World of Digital Opportunities

The 17th edition of the Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR) was held in Nassau, Bahamas, from 11 to 14 July 2017. A series of GSR pre-events took place on 11 and the morning of 12 July. These  included a Thematic Pre-Conference, a Global Dialogue on Digital Financial Inclusion focusing on cybersecurity, the Regional Regulatory Associations Meeting (RA) and the Private Sector Chief Regulatory Officers Meeting.

The GSR sessions were open to regulators, policy makers and members of ITU's Development Sector on 12 and 13 July. On 14 July, two parallel tracks were held, a Regulators' track, open only to regulators and policy makers, and an Industry track (ILD), open to ITU-D sector members, in addition to the final closing ceremony open to all participants.

Today, fifth generation of ICT regulation is coming of age, and unleashing the potential of collaboration among stakeholders to create an enabling environment for innovation and investment is essential. More information will be made available shortly.
