Mrs Magdalena Gaj
2013 Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR) and the Global Regulators-Industry Dialogue (GRID) was organised under the auspices of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). GSR13 was held in Warsaw, Poland between 2nd and 5th July 2013.
The hosting of this prestigious event was entrusted to the President of the Office of Electronic Communications.
GSR13 was a remarkable event, bringing together over 660 participants from over 120 countries, including Heads of State or Government officials, Ministers and Vice-Ministers, Heads of regulators and international and regional organizations and private sector companies and other stakeholders.
Thanks to our distinguished delegates, the Symposium enjoyed a truly warm, positive spirit of friendship, cooperation and commitment.
We discussed the crucial current regulatory issues and challenges in the ICT market.
Together, we had very intense and in–depth discussion which resulted in the best practice guidelines. I believe that the results of GSR13 are crucial and bring real benefits for regulators and other participants and will be reflected in our everyday regulatory work.
I would like to offer my own, special thanks to the panelists and moderators, which produced stimulating discussions and which at every stage emphasized the true power of cooperation and to all GSR13 participants.
I hope that for all of you the GSR13 was also a great opportunity to get to know the charming corners of Poland.
Thank you – and I look forward to seeing you all again in the same spirit of commitment and enthusiasm next year at the 14th GSR.
The honorary patronage of HE Bronisław Komorowski, President of the Republic of Poland
