BDT Director's Corner


"The world today is driven by technological advances and innovation which are shaping the way we live.

The Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT), the operational arm of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), works with partners to help spread the benefits of information and communication technologies (ICT) to people all around the world.

As BDT Director, I believe that to be truly effective, we must build on our past achievements and lessons learned, while seeking new ideas and adopting innovative approaches.

Above all, our success will depend on coordinated action to achieve the Unionís mandate of connecting the world.

I look forward to working with all partners."
