Working Group on ITU Reform

Working Group on ITU Reform - Background information

The Plenipotentiary Conference (Minneapolis, 1998), through Resolution 74, invited the Council to establish an open working group of Member States and Sector Members to review the management, functioning and structure of the Union as well as the rights and obligations of Member States and Sector Members. It also instructed the Secretary-General and the Directors of the Bureaux to report to Council on the further changes for improving the organization and working methods that are necessary to ensure that ITU is able to meet its objective as set forth in the Constitution and developed in the strategic plan.

The Council, at its 1999 session, having considered Resolution 74 and Resolution 90 (Minneapolis, 1998) on the review of the contribution of Sector Members towards defraying the expenses of the Union, resolved to establish a  Working Group on ITU Reform (Res.1132).

On 26 July 1999,  the Secretary-General solicited opinions (DM-1063) (and DM-1091 including comments made by the Reform Advisory Panel) from Member States and Sector Members on issues relating to further changes for improving the organization.   The Chairman, in turn, also requested contributions through letter DM-1111.
