Regional Regulators' Forum Asia 2019

Regional Regulators' Forum Asia 2019
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Supported by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission

 

Following on from 2018’s very successful visit to Singapore, the IIC’s Regional Regulators’ Forum (RRF) returned to Asia in 2019, to Kuala Lumpur. The RRF was held on 12 February and was followed by the Telecommunications & Media Forum on 13-14 February.

The region is undergoing rapid change and technological development, presenting rich opportunities for the telecommunications, media and technology sector to help drive economic and societal benefit. The policy and regulatory considerations are complex and varied and the IIC is ideally positioned to enable fruitful discussion between all parties.

The RRF brought together senior regulators from across the region and beyond to discuss the issues that affect them today, as well as keeping an eye on what the future may bring. To see what was discussed at the Asia 2018 Regional Regulators’ Forum, click here

WHY REGULATORS VALUE THE REGULATORY FORUM

There are many demands on your time and many industry events for regulators and industry to attend. IIC events are different. The Regional Regulators’ Forum is a network of like-minded senior professionals, communicating and supporting one another in challenging roles. It attracts participants from all around the world and we discuss regional issues set against a global backdrop. The meetings (for statutory regulators only) are big enough to hear diverse opinions and small enough to enable private networking, intimate meetings, informed debate and a chance to catch up with colleagues from around the world.

Participants are able to speak freely, facilitating the open and honest exchange of information, and maximising opportunities for the sharing of best practice among peers.

The International and Regional Regulators’ Forums give senior players from National Regulatory Authorities an environment in which they:

  • Gain current information and insights
  • Explore the far-reaching implications of new technology
  • Showcase their regulatory work in a collegiate arena
  • Get validation and constructive feedback on their ideas from international peers
  • Build supportive and strategic relationships
