The Public Policy Forum in 2014 will provide insights and information for regulators and policymakers around the theme “Towards the Big Goals for a Digital Society”, focusing on connecting the next billion people affordably, examining privacy and identity issues surrounding the use of digital services, and enabling machine to machine connections to build smart businesses and cities.  The session will stimulate interactive discussion through presentations and panels as well as high level networking opportunities.
