ITU Regional Seminar on Costs and Tariffs and Meeting of the Study Group 3 Regional Group for Africa (SG3RG-AFR) (former TAF Group)

Maputo, Mozambique, 4-8 May 2009


Event Description

The ITU Regional Seminar on Costs and Tariffs, held in Maputo, 4-8 May 2009, was organized jointly by the Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT) and the Telecommunication Standardization Bureau (TSB) of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in collaboration with the Instituto Nacional das Comunicações de Moçambique. A Regional Meeting of the Study Group 3 Regional Group for Africa (SG3RG-AFR) (former TAF Group) followed the seminar from 6-8 May 2009.

During these meetings, work progressed regarding ITU-T Recommendation D.156 and the ITRs, as well as work on tariff and economic issues such as cost modeling.  This work included regulatory issues such as international Internet connectivity, and discussion sessions were conducted to promote and foster dialogue and exchange of experiences among participants.

 These meetings not only acted as a forum for the exchange of views, successful strategies and regulatory approaches in the region, but also gave regulators a better understanding of critical areas such as broadband policies and tariff regulation, fulfilling one of the main objectives of the Regional Group to provide telecommunication regulators with the information and tools they need to create appropriate regulatory pricing frameworks in order to facilitate further development in this sector.
