About the GSMA Ministerial Programme

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

This unique event is 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. Invitations to the 2025 edition will be sent from October. Find out more.
