Contribution : Speaking on behalf of Latin-American telecom operators, ASIET (Interamerican Association of telecom enterprises) believes that enabling environments are essential to reach the social and economic advantages of the Internet, and consequently, of the Information Society. These are created through flexible and light touch regulation for emerging and innovative technologies and business models and applying the same rules for all the players in the digital ecosystem value chain. Enabling environments are essential for the continued fulfilment of the benefits of the Internet and ICT for Sustainable Development Goals. Innovation, building and developing ICTs and infrastructure are crucial, but it requires that the necessary legal, policy and regulatory frameworks and approaches that are in place at national levels be revised in order be adapted to the new scenario and so continue promoting investment in ICTs and infrastructure, fostering entrepreneurship and innovation.
