    2014 Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR) to be held in Bahrain: Host Country Agreement signed

    Dubai, 30 March 2014 - Mr Sanou and Dr Mohammed Ahmed Alamer, Chairman of the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) of the Kingdom of Bahrain, co-signed today a Host Country Agreement which will allow the 2014 edition of the Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR) to be held in Bahrain this year.

    "I am very thankful to the Government of Bahrain and in particular to the TRA for having offered to host this ITU flagship event in their beautiful country," said Mr Sanou. "I am sure that we will count on their traditional hospitality and excellent organizational skills to ensure a successful GSR," he added.

     Under the overarching theme of "Capitalizing on the potential of the digital world" participants will examine ways to ensure that the full array of benefits of the digital world is brought to all citizens of the world in an informed, responsive and safe manner. This can be achieved only through effective and smart regulation targeted at empowering consumers, redefining responsibilities and creating the conditions for a data driven economy to flourish.

    The GSR will take place from 3 to 5 June 2014. It will be preceded by one day of pre-events on 2nd June 2014.
