INFRASTRUCTURE, INVESTMENT AND INNOVATION: POLICY AND REGULATORY BUILDING BLOCKS FOR THE DIGITAL ECONOMY

Kindly hosted by Squire Patton Boggs

 

This two-day discussion will examine the key components and regulatory frameworks that can enable the development of an effective digital economy.

The meeting will evaluate developments so far and examine whether existing policy frameworks are ‘fit for purpose’ and what needs to be done, especially to the infrastructure, to ensure investment in accessibility, affordability and security.

Experts will join the discussion with delegates and explore whether policy makers in government, regulatory authorities and industry are doing enough to encourage investment and develop resources.

All sessions will have Spanish/English simultaneous translation to ensure maximum participation from all.
