Capacity Building partners with the Tunisian regulator to deliver training
Last month, GSMA Capacity Building and l’Instance Nationale des Télécommunications (INTT), the Tunisian telecommunications regulator, hosted a two-day training workshop in Tunis, Tunisia, on Competition Policy in the Digital Age.
The 30 attendees included regulators and judges from the Tunisian Competition Council and members from the Administrative Tribunal. This course is part of a new wave of capacity building engagements in the Middle East and North Africa. GSMA is working to strengthen relationships with policymakers in order to build expertise on next generation issues facing the telecommunications industry. This workshop is the second activity that GSMA has had with INTT following our first activity in May 2017. Future sessions will focus on regulatory modernisation and children and mobile technology.
The session, opened by INTT President Hichem Besbes and GSMA Public Policy Director Mohamed Abbes, covered issues raised through the application of competition, regulatory and legal tools when faced with a dynamic digital ecosystem. It spurred thoughtful discussions about the direction of competition policy in Tunisia.
One attendee said, “I have learned so much from your training, it will really assist me in my workplace.” Another representative of the Competition Council described the workshop as “very informative, very well presented and very enjoyable.”
President Besbes said the session was highly useful, especially to align the level of knowledge within my teams. The GSMA looks forward to working with INTT to make sure that policymakers and regulators in Tunisia receive the training that they need to keep pace with all of the latest developments in the mobile industry.
