About Policy and Regulation


The main purpose of our work in the Policy and Regulation program is to provide the tools for an effective policy, legal and regulatory and market environment for the telecommunication/ICT sector.  
    • We convene global and regional events and forums to discuss global trends in regulation including by organizing the Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR) as well as other strategic dialogues on topical policy, legal, regulatory, as well as  economic and financial issues and market developments. 
    • We provide data, research and analysis and tools to support our members in defining, elaborating, implementing and reviewing transparent, coherent and forward-looking strategies, policy, legal and regulatory frameworks as well as in moving towards evidence-based decision-making.  
    • We provide knowledge exchange tools and platforms to enable inclusive dialogue and enhanced cooperation to help countries achieve a more inclusive digital society and to raise national and regional awareness about the importance of an enabling environment.
    • We provide direct assistance to countries and regions on an enabling environment for smart connected societies.
