This year’s three-day agenda addresses how policy and regulation can adapt to new markets and growth opportunities that deliver true value for citizens.

The Ministerial Programme 2020 is focusing on change.

Digital and technology innovation is pushing the boundaries of our industry and as demand for intelligent connectivity and digital services builds across new markets and industries, ICT is at the heart of every new ecosystem.

Industry change is inevitable but how we evolve and adapt to new environments is key.

Day Two: Enable

With every new technology introduced, value chains evolve as new ecosystems grow. In a rapidly changing industry, how are policy frameworks adapting to innovation and enabling change for our long-term future?
