The APT Pacific Forum on Telecommunication Policy and Regulation (PRF), initiated in 2008 provides an excellent forum for discussion on common policy and regulatory issues of the region. It has provided the members and key stakeholders with the understanding and knowledge of the policy and regulatory best practices and information of emerging issues that countries need to consider in regulating their telecom environments and proving an enabling and sustainable environment for the telecom industry.
Objectives of the Policy and Regulatory Forum are:
"Bring the telecommunications and ICT policy makers, regulators and key stakeholders from the region together to a common platform for a dialogue on issues faced by them as a result of the unprecedented changes taking place in the ICT sectors.
"Provide an opportunity to the policy makers, regulators and key stakeholders to share information, best practices and experiences for the common benefit of the member countries.
"Provide consultative support to members on one to one basis when required.
"Promote sharing of expertise for addressing key issues of concern to the APT members.
"Facilitating intra regional collaboration on policy and regulatory issues as required.
"Facilitating the PRF to provide substantial inputs to the Global Symposium of Regulators (GSR) and regional preparatory meetings for WTSA, WRC, and relevant international meetings
