Panel 3 Ministerial Strategy Conference, UPU Second Extraordinary Congress (3-7 September 2018, Addis Ababa)
7 Sep 2018 -  In the aftermath of the 2008–2009 financial crisis, regulatory activity worldwide soared, especially in the financial sector. However, 10 years later, the risks have evolved. Technological change and big data have further transformed consumption models, which in turn have triggered a multitude of innovations, from 3D printing to blockchains. The boundaries of many sectors such as the Post have thus become even more blurred, hence the need to rethink regulation and governance for this digital age.

Panellists will discuss models that could be effective in helping governments strike a balance between fostering innovation and providing stability through regulation.
