Regulatory Summit

SAMENA Telecommunications Council’s Regional Regulatory Summit is a region-wide conference to promote public-private co-operation for digital transformation in the region. It brings together public-private stakeholders and government delegations. The primary aim of the Regulatory Summit is to help understand imperatives in public sector and private sector cooperation in the context of national ICT visions and transformation trends in regional digital development. The Regulatory Summit explores ways for the public sector to be more closely engaged with the private sector, and serves as a platform for the regional industry's leadership to convene and bring the future of market competition, technologies and services, and stakeholder priorities into perspective.
