Global Regulators-Industry Dialogue (GRID 2014)

​The ITU decided to reform the Global Industry Leaders Forum to further strengthen the dialogue between industry and regulatory agencies. The newly created Global Regulators-Industry Dialogue (GRID or Global Dialogue) is now an integral part of the Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR) and it takes place during the first two days of the GSR, which are therefore open to both regulators, policy-makers and industry representatives.
The GSR, including the Global Dialogue, will take place in Manama, Bahrain, 3-5 June 2014.


​The Global Dialogue provides, within the Global Symposium for Regulators, a neutral platform for ITU-D Sector Members to share their views with policy makers and regulators on major issues facing the ICT sector, with a particular emphasis on reducing barriers to ICT investment in developing and least developed countries.


The programme of the Global Regulators-Industry Dialogue has been designed to reinforce the industry-regulators collaboration within the agenda of the 14th Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR). The theme of this year's GSR is "Capitalizing on the potential of the digital world".


Pre-registration will be carried out exclusively online through Focal Points designated by each entity entitled to participate in the 14th Global Symposium of Regulators (GSR).


​The GSR14 Pre-Event Programme and the Global Regulators-Industry Dialogue are made possible thanks to the support of the following sponsors:
