Agile Governance

The COVID-19 pandemic has wrought economic and social disruption worldwide. As governments and businesses seek to rebuild afresh, we must ensure that the innovation that will power economic growth and solve the world’s most pressing social and environmental challenges is not held back by regulations designed for the past. A more agile approach to regulation is needed, that seizes the opportunities of the Fourth Industrial Revolution whilst mitigating the risks.

Watch this discussion to hear how governments are reimagining how emerging technologies should be governed and how businesses can contribute to this endeavour.
