Addressing the needs of the Central and Eastern Europe, the Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT) organized a training session on Enhanced Collaboration with the ITU, held from 26-27 January 2009 in the ITU Headquarters, in close collaboration with the Radiocommunication and Standardization Bureaux as well as the General Secretariat. Training was targeted at the staff of the Ministries and Regulatory Authorities, in particular those requiring very good understanding of the ITU's role and functions in the telecommunication/ICT sector for accomplishing their tasks. The elected officials as well as executive professionals from all three sectors provided a detailed overview of key ITU activities, with emphasis on the opportunities for enhanced collaboration with the ITU, best practices, and the working methods. This intersectoral activity was very much appreciated by the participants. It was an important step towards strengthening cooperation with ICT stakeholders from this sub-region as well as possible involvement of new membership from the CEE countries in the works of the ITU.
