Government Leadership Award

Congratulations to the Government of Pakistan, winner of the GSMA’s Government Leadership Award for 2017. The award was presented by the GSMA’s Director General, Mats Granryd, at the Global Mobile Awards Ceremony on 28 February 2017.

This award recognises the Government of Pakistan’s proactive approach in consulting with the industry as it embarks on a series of regulatory reforms, starting with the adoption of the Telecom Policy 2015 to drive further regulatory modernisation in the country. This government has also consistently shown support for mobile enabled ICT as a development tool, showing that mobile can be central to Pakistan’s Vision 2025 goals as well as the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. As ever with far thinking reform, challenges remain, but this award recognises the critical importance of transparency and constructive and open dialogue with industry, as essential elements to the future of every country’s policy framework.

The Government Leadership Award sits in the Government Excellence Award category of the GSMA’s Global Mobile Awards. The call for entries for the 2018 Global Mobile Awards will open later this year.
