Against the backdrop of a rapidly evolving technological landscape, leading figures in the digital domain will convene on the Ministerial Stage to provide insights and strategies for addressing key policy areas – including 5G expansion, artificial intelligence, digital inclusion, and climate action, to name a few – to fuel growth of our digital economies and societies.
In addition to this, a new Focus Stage will provide an opportunity for attendees to delve deeper into the topics and challenges that are dominating globally this year and hear from subject matter experts.
