National Strategies and Technology Shifts Redefining Digital Policy and Regulatory Trends in META

This IDC Market Perspective provides an overview of the journey from traditional telecom regulation to digital regulation and how international organizations such as ITU, the European Commission, and the OECD are leading efforts in this transition. The document looks closely at some of the key countries in the Middle East, Türkiye, and Africa in terms of their policy and regulatory initiatives to enhance their digital ecosystems. The report also offers advice for policymakers, regulators, and digital ecosystem players based on research findings, best practices, and regulatory principles."Over the last few decades, rapid technology advances and national transformation strategies have led to a dynamic shift in ICT policies and regulations. This shift has redefined regulatory roles, which must now address telecom, ICT, and digital ecosystems and players. Policy and regulatory initiatives are diversifying in this new era, with concepts such as digital tax, cloud and digital platform regulations, data sovereignty, IoT regulations, and OTT communications." — Senior Research Manager Tolga Yalcin, IDC Middle East, Türkiye, and Africa
