July 29 Better World Summit 2020

Dear KICTANeters

We would like to invite you to attend our global online Better World Summit, which will be held on July 27th-29th, 2020 and is entirely free.

The pandemic has changed the world around us, touching on every aspect of work and life. Throughout this process, ICT infrastructure has proven to be a potent bulwark in our fight against the coronavirus and the broader social challenges it brings.

This summit is designed to explore how ICT can be used to more effectively combat the spread of COVID-19 and boost post-pandemic economic recovery.

Alongside telecom carriers, regulators, analysts, media, and our partners around the globe, we will delve into how ICT is providing new value in a wide range of fields, including telemedicine, remote education, telework, and public health services. And we will also explore the strategic foundations it lays for a brighter, more prosperous tomorrow. It is several hours split over 3 days, though the July 29 will focus more on policy and may be of interest to those on the list.

Here is the agenda for the July 29 Policy related session.
