‘A key issue is how companies and workforce in Singapore respond to technological disruptions, and leverage digital technology to remain competitive and create new business value.’
Mr Tan Kiat How, CEO of the Infocomm Media Development Authority, Singapore

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. We are a network of like-minded senior professionals, communicating and supporting one another in challenging roles. The Regional Regulators’ Forum attracts participants from all around the world and we discuss regional issues set against a global backdrop. The meetings are big enough to hear diverse opinions and small enough to enable private networking, intimate meetings, informed collegiate debate and a chance to catch up with colleagues from around the world.

The International and Regional Regulators’ Forum 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
