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

Kindly hosted by Squire Patton Boggs

 

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

The meeting evaluated developments so far and examined 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.
