  • Step 2: Adopt/revise and fund whole-of-government strategies on AI
  • Step 3: Solidify and implement specific regulations on the ethics of AI
  • Step 4: Adjust or enforce existing copyright laws to regulate AI-generated content
  • Step 5: Elaborate regulatory frameworks on generative AI
  • Step 6: Build capacity for proper use of GenAI in education and research
