The Global Symposium for Regulators responsible for the telecommunications markets discusses regulatory challenges for the next years

logo GSR
From 8 to 12 June, the annual global meeting of heads and experts from regulatory authorities responsible for the telecommunications markets is taking place in Gabon. The main theme of this year's symposium is how the regulators should respond to challenges related to investment in ICT infrastructure to ensure that new services and applications are developed, enhancing the opportunities for global digital society to grow.

 

Regulatory approaches to new trends and market challenges are also discussed. This year's Symposium was organized by ITU in cooperation with the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Gabon. The Symposium is attended by more than 400 participants associated with the ICT sector all over the world.

A number of workshops, seminars and accompanying meetings, i.e. a meeting of associations and companies from the ICT industry, were held during the GSR-15. The main topic of this year's symposium is the exchange of best regulatory practices in order to ensure appropriate conditions for the development and take-up of mobile services.

The President of UKE was a moderator of the session on the impact of regulation on broadband uptake with representatives of regulatory authorities from Costa Rica, Switzerland and Cambodia. The Polish regulator stressed the importance of ensuring appropriate cooperation with the telecommunications market in order to respond in an adequate way to consumer needs in terms of developments in services during the next few years. The necessary pre-condition for that is appropriate governmental policy, but also regulatory environment, in particular regulatory predictability. The following topics were also discussed: access barriers to digital services, in particular in rural areas, the future of universal service and whether this is a solution to ensure sustainable access to ICT services, the role of access to information about infrastructure for enhancing digital services and approaches to the quality of services provided to consumers. During her speech the President of UKE draw on numerous good examples from the Polish market. In addition to the panellists, the attendees of the Symposium also joined the discussion.

The Global Symposium for Regulators is yet another global event, following the WSIS Forum chaired by the President of UKE, to which Magdalena Gaj was invited to moderate the discussion as a recognized ICT expert.
