2016 Highlights

The 2016 Ministerial Programme was an outstanding success, with nearly 1,500 attendees participating across the four days, including 168 delegations representing 137 countries and 31 international organisations.

Under the theme of ‘Connecting Everyone and Everything to a Better Future’, the eleventh annual Ministerial Programme highlighted the need for a supportive policy environment and cross-sector collaboration to enable a digital future for all. More than 100 speakers participated in the various sessions, sharing their expertise and insights through keynotes and panel discussions on a range of issues, from connectivity and affordability, to digital identity and the Internet of Things.

Each year, the Ministerial Programme continues to expand as it offers governments and industry increased networking opportunities and the chance to discuss the specific regulatory issues shaping mobile’s global development.
