Regional Regulators' Forum Miami 2019

Regional Regulators' Forum Miami 2019

wednesday 15 may 2019

Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP
Miami, USA

 

In the first Regional Regulators’ Forum (RRF) of 2019, the Chair of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (the hosting authority) said "In view of these challenges [in the fast evolving communications sector] we need to come together, as we are here today, as often as possible to relate and share experiences, successes and failures, so that we can become more effective... This means we have to continuously learn from each other and build relationships that cross borders and connections, so that we can leverage on one another to take advantage of future opportunities as well as mitigate the risk that faces us."

The Miami RRF continued this dialogue, bringing together colleagues from the LatAm and Caribbean regions and beyond to share their experiences and learn from one another. They considered a number of issues including:

  • Those affecting content matters (national broadcasters, mergers and share of voice, advertising to name a few)
  • Inclusion and funding
  • Building resilience for emergency planning
  • Preparations for WRC19

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
