“This assignment is challenging, yet exciting. The online gaming industry is outstripping most other sections of our economy, growing at 30% annually and contributing significantly to tax revenues. Sure, there are complex policy issues here and I hope to be a contributor to this process. That being said, players and companies similarly need a safe and enriching experience, in order to realise their need for growth. I look forward to being part of AIGF’s advisory panel, and I believe that their charter will catalyse inclusive growth,” Behuria added.
