Rising synergies among ICT Industry and other Industries also merit dialogue and deliberation in new light.
RISE is a new leaders-centric project by SAMENA Council, centered on the need for ICT ecosystem sustainability, to assist proactive engagement and industry discourse with respect to priorities, challenges, and opportunities being addressed by regional policymakers and regulatory authorities. RISE aims to be the platform for recognizing, appreciating, and guiding fifth-generation collaborative regulation and policy requirements and achievements, to help incentivize the Operator Community, Sectors and Verticals, Cross-industry Innovation, and the Private Sector, at large, toward sustainability in investment and improved collaboration.
RISE is inviting the participation of all ICT and non-ICT industry stakeholders. Invitations can be requested by writing to SAMENA Council (firstname.lastname@example.org).
