About the GSMA Ministerial Programme

The GSMA Ministerial Programme has grown in popularity and scope since its launch in 2006.

This unique event has been attended by industry CEOs, ministers, telecom regulators, data protection authorities and senior representatives of international organisations – all gathering to share knowledge, stimulate debate around current issues – and provide an opportunity to engage with mobile industry experts on policy and regulatory topics.

The Ministerial Programme is an invitation-only event, targeted at senior government and industry leaders. Find out more.

Companies are moving faster than governments are, let’s not allow governments to be left behind. And this means that governments have to engage – the world and certainly technology isn’t going to wait.

— Amina J. Mohamed, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations and Chair of the United Nations Sustainable Development Group.
