Information and communication technologies (ICTs) now underpin nearly every sector of the economy, boosting growth and improving lives at a pace and scale not seen before.
This rapid and transformational change is driving the need for cross-sector collaboration – as well as flexible, incentive-based, market-driven regulation.
Moving towards more open, collaborative and cross-sectoral regulation will help to unlock investment that supports innovation, job creation – and digital transformation.
That is why ITU has developed the concepts of “collaborative regulation” and “fifth-generation regulation”. And that is why we have launched the latest edition of ICT Regulatory Tracker.
