Implications of technological advancement and the evolving political landscape internationally

We were back in Washington D.C. last week for the final Telecommunications and Media Forum of 2016 discussing a year of turbulence against a shifting political background.

Delegates heard an excellent keynote from Marcus Weldon of Nokia who provided context for a discussion around the policy challenges of disruptive new technologies. You can see the edited transcript and keynote presentation here.

Other presentations will be available in due course.
