LIBREVILLE, Gabon, Jun 9 – Bharti Airtel Africa, a leading telecommunications service provider with operations in 20 countries across Asia and Africa, is partnering with the 2015 International Telecommunication Union Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR).

The symposium starts on Tuesday June 9, 2015 to the 11th, in Libreville Gabon.

The GSR conference central theme is “Mind the Digital Gap – Regulatory incentives to achieve digital opportunities”.
