"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
