Тема доклада: Unlocking Digital Opportunities: Key Policy Challenges

Тезисы: Increased connectivity — in particular mobile — brings significant economic benefits by enabling the digital economy. As technology, consumer needs and the competitive landscape are changing rapidly, telecom operators are updating their strategies. VimpelCom, as well as other operators, is therefore transforming into a fully digital services provider aiming to unlock digital opportunities for all our customers, including enabling digital financial services. Going digital, however, means facing an increasingly complex policy environment. In this context, the presentation will discuss opportunities that the digital transformation opens to everyone, and key policy areas that need to be addressed to enable them.
