The inherent strength of the Internet lies in its decentralized participative nature, and we believe that the development of digital regulation should mirror this ethos, prioritizing a people-centered and bottom-up approach. To this end, our focus turns to exploring innovative strategies for cultivating regional tech governance. In this panel, we aim to delve into actionable methodologies that can facilitate the seamless integration of this approach through the medium of cross-sector digital regulation sandboxes.
