International Regulators Forum 2014

6-7 October

Hosted by the Austrian Regulatory Authority (RTR)

On the 6th and 7th of October regulators from over 40 economies from around the world met at the RTR in Vienna to discuss topics ranging from adoption in a world seen to be moving faster and faster to understanding the call from markets for responsible competition to protecting those, be they individuals or emerging providers, who might need protection.  We heard about: the role that infrastructure can, might and should play; the balance of public, social and economic good; the role between collecting and protecting information.   Twenty three separate panellists presented views that led to lively discussion and debate.


 KEY DISCUSSION THEMES
