Egypt, represented by the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA), is participating in the 19th Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR-19) organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in collaboration with the Government of Vanuatu, at Port Vila, Vanuatu, from 9 to 12 July 2019.
The theme of this year’s Global Symposium for Regulators is “Inclusive Connectivity: The future of regulation”. Discussions will focus on digital strategies and policies; infrastructure regulation; innovative investment and financing mechanisms, trust and confidence in a data driven economy; the need for spectrum; preparing for 5G and the changing consumer role.
GSR-19 provides a unique platform for ICT regulators and stakeholders to collaborate, share experiences and knowledge, and identify means to bring affordable, safe, secure and trusted connectivity and online access and use to people everywhere. As part of the symposium, a number of thematic events and workshops will be held, including the Heads of Regulators Executive Roundtable, the Regional Regulatory Associations Meeting, and the Private Sector Chief Regulatory Officers (CRO) Meeting on July 9.
Since 2000, the Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR) brings together heads of national telecom/ICT regulatory authorities from around the world and has earned a reputation as the global annual venue for regulators to share their views and experiences on the most pressing regulatory issues they have identified. GSR also fosters a dynamic global industry regulators dialogue, between regulators, policy makers, industry leaders and other key ICT stakeholders.
