ICT regulators play a vital role usually behind the scenes in enabling the growth and development of the ICT environment. Regulators ensure fair market practices, fair conditions for service providers and most importantly fair prices for consumers. Now that technology is critical in the attainment of the 17 Global UN Sustainable Development Goals, it is a critical time for ICT regulation and all regulators from the smallest to the largest markets can benefit from international dialogue and exchange.
