New technologies cannot be constrained within national borders, making international collaboration essential if we are to ensure their sustainable development and equitable access to their benefits.

Speaking from the unique approaches their regions are taking to fostering robust STI policies in emerging technologies, the session sets the scene by providing insights into the importance of fora like the OECD and the Global Forum on Technology for countries to engage in constructive conversations and strategic dialogue on emerging technologies and their potential impacts on society.
