The ITU Global Dialogue on International Mobile Roaming (IMR)
Popov Room, ITU Headquarters, Geneva, Switzerland, 18 September 2015
Under the overarching theme “LET’S ROAM THE WORLD”, this Global Dialogue provided a global perspective of IMR and the changing rules of the game brought by the advent of new players. Considering the international nature of Roaming, it is becoming essential that all stakeholders work together at regional or multi country level to explore different regulatory, transparency and commercial measures in the IMR market, and to permit NRAs to monitor development in the market.
The second edition of the ITU High-Level Workshop on International Mobile Roaming “LET’S ROAM THE WORLD: The ITU Global Dialogue on International Mobile Roaming (IMR)” as part of the Global Initiative launched in 2013 by Mr Brahima Sanou, Director of the ITU Telecommunications Development Bureau, welcomed over 200 participants, including policy makers, national regulatory authorities (NRAs) leading private sector companies of the information and communication technology (ICT) sector around the world, Regional Regulatory Associations, International Organization, and consumer representatives. It provided participants with the opportunity to engage with internationally renowned experts and panelists, exchange views and experiences and identify common approaches to respond efficiently to the challenges of IMR. Results from the discussions are available in the Final Report of the Dialogue.
