Latin America Policy Group
The Policy Group for Latin America (PG Latam) is the main body for the consultation and strategic direction of mobile operator members for activities of the GSMA in Latin America and the Caribbean. It is composed of senior executives representing the main telecommunications companies offering services for 95% of all mobile connections in the region.
The focus of the PG Latam includes public policy and regulation, as these issues require more attention, dialogue, and positioning among the industry in the region. The group also discusses issues of strategy for innovation and technological development in the mobile industry, which are accounted for by the corresponding specialist sub-working groups.
The PG, created in Barcelona in MWC12, reports to the Global PG and also provides institutional support for the experts’ Working Groups activities. Members of these groups include mobile operators of GSMA Latin America: REGU, SEGF, TECT, WASL and the Task Force for Corporate Social Responsibility, Health and Electromagnetic Fields.
The GSMA also frequently invites regional mobile operators to participate in CEO or CTO roundtables which serve as an opportunity to validate the actions of the PG Latam and define future work.
