Today in Cancun starts the 4th edition of the Latin American Telecommunications Conference, also known by its acronym in Spanish CLT – Congreso Latinoamericano de Telecomunicaciones, which is an annual event organized by ASIET.

The Internet Society has been supporting the event since its inception and continues to participate in this important event, as it brings together the key policymakers and business representatives on telecommunications industry to discuss and collaborate on overcoming the regional challenges to create public policies that promote more access and development.

This year the focus is on future regulation of the digital ecosystem as one of the key themes. The event is also held in parallel with the OECD Ministerial on Digital Economy, which will bring intertwined discussions with a high level attendance.

Our CEO Kathy Brown will deliver a speech about the Future of the Internet in 5 years, on Monday, 20th June at 5:00 pm (local time, UTC-5).
