ITU Workshop on Building Capacity on National ICT Statistics in the Pacific  

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is organising an ITU Workshop on Building Capacity on National ICT Statistics in the Pacific, which will take place at Tanoa International Hotel in Nadi, Fiji, from 24-25 October 2013. The Workshop will be hosted by the Ministry of Communications, The Republic of Fiji, with support from the Department of Communications, Australian Government.

This Workshop is the first step to address a project proposal from the Pacific Islands Countries for development of Pacific ICT Benchmarks. The Workshop will address, among others, the following topics:

  • Identification of key international telecommunications indicators.

  • Definitions, availability, and sources of data.

  • Methods of data collection and quality control.

  • Roadmap for development of Pacific ICT benchmarks.

The Workshop, open to all the membership in the Pacific, is primarily targeted at those responsible for ICT statistics in relevant Ministries, regulatory agencies, telecommunication operation companies and national statistical offices.

ITU, with support from the Australian Government, will provide one fellowship each per Pacific Member State, on a first-come, first-served basis to participate in the Workshop during 24-25 October 2013. The last date for fellowship application is 15 October 2013.

Taking this opportunity, I would like to invite your organisation to also participate in the ‘Symposium: Spectrum Management’ which will be held on Sunday 27 October 2013 at the same venue; and to be followed by the ‘ITU Regional Radiocommunication Seminar for Asia-Pacific’ (RRS-13-Asia-Pacific), i.e. from 28 October to 1 November 2013 in that the invitations of the events have been distributed earlier. Please see http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-R/seminars/rrs/RRS-13-Asia-Pacific for updated information on these events.

For further information, please contact Mr. Wisit Atipayakoon (wisit.atipayakoon@itu.int).
