GSMA Ministerial Programme

Towards a New Infrastructure Investment Framework


Tue, 27 Feb: 11:45 - 13:00 CEST

Invitation Required


CC5 Ministerial Stage, Hall Upper Walkway

Session Description

The telecoms sector faces an investment challenge. Governments striving for digital advancement are pushing operators to deliver broadband to every citizen, community and corridor. Global mobile data traffic is expected to grow by 54% annually from 2020 to 2030, according to ITU forecasts, requiring continuous expansion of network capacity. New technologies are raising the demands on network capabilities, further increasing costs. Even as operators are projected to spend $1.5 trillion on mobile networks between 2023 and 2030, the current economic and regulatory conditions have led to an investment gap, which if unresolved will hold back the digital transformations that consumers and enterprises want. In this session, the speakers will reflect on the challenges and consider how a reset of the current investment framework might be achieved.
