Thinking Globally. Acting Globally.

Your business is global, yet often your government only thinks local. What can you do about that, and how does it affect your business?

This will not be a boring lawyer talk, but an interactive discussion where we work together to understand how to make government policy better. You will learn how you can become active in a group that has had significant influence on the laws of the United States, and on the global stage, and how you can use your enthusiasm and love for the industry to help change policies in India and the world.

This dynamic discussion will present an overview of the legal landscape of laws, regulations and policies pertinent to your business. We will draw attention to areas and policies that the Indian government is moving forward on the global stage that make running your business difficult.

Finally, we will work collaboratively to come up with possible avenues to address these issues, using the Internet Infrastructure Coalition – India, as the industry’s voice.
