Ministerial Programme 2019 is putting the global citizen first.

The industry is at a point of inflexion where the growth of digital services and technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain and 5G will have a significant impact on society’s progress for generations to come.

Digital is establishing itself as a key platform for delivering an advanced and inclusive society. Structured around three key themes, Ministerial Programme 2019 will look beyond traditional telecom regulation and policy topics to a new narrative centred around mobile and the emerging digital citizen.
