Each year, BEREC organises a study trip to a non-EU country to gain insights from the local electronic communications markets and digital ecosystem. The BEREC delegation holds technical discussions with representatives from regulatory agencies, the relevant ministries, as well as telecom operators and other stakeholders in the industry. Last year, the delegation visited China and previous destinations have included Japan and India.

This year from 19 to 24 January, the BEREC Chair for 2020 Mr Dan Sjöblom (PTS) and Vice-Chairs Mr Jeremy Godfrey (ComReg), Mr Michel van Bellinghen (BIPT), Dr Monika Karas (NMHH), Mr Tonko Obuljen (HAKOM) and Mr Sasho Dimitrijoski accompanied by Mr Tom Boyce (ComReg), Mr Ola Bergstrom (PTS) and Ms Anna Maria Toth (NMHH) will visit the west coast of the United States of America.

The delegation is scheduled to meet with equipment manufacturers, service providers, organisations and research centres that impact and influence not only the electronic communications sector but also the wider digital ecosystem. Specifically, the delegation will meet with representatives from Apple, Cisco, Qualcomm, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, AT&T, SpaceX, ICANN and Stanford University.
