Addressing the challenges of scale and speed for regulators as enablers of digital transformation in smaller countries and economies
This virtual Café gave members of the Small Nations Regulators’ Forum the opportunity to engage with colleagues in a small group setting to share experiences, problem-solve, and plan for next steps.
Discussion included the following topics:
a) Fibre Connectivity
b) Spectrum coordination and
c) constructing single open access fibre infrastructure?
The matters raised previously continue to be an issue for the SNRF and were discussed at the 2019 meeting in London which was supported by Gibraltar Regulatory Authority
Reports and discussion papers are available to members of the Forum.
The following year, the Broadcasting Commission Jamaica (BCJ) chaired the Forum and hosted the first online meeting which looked at the emerging threats to democracy and social stability in small nation-states, and included a discussion of fake news, political manipulation, and criminal and terrorist use of social media.
The inaugural meeting of the Small Nations Regulators’ Forum was held in 2017 in Brussels under the chairmanship of OfReg, the multisector regulatory authority of the Cayman Islands. At that meeting the particular challenges facing small nations, especially in terms of connectivity and accessibility were discussed.
