The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission of Thailand (NBTC) are jointly organising the ITU Regional Forum on Telecommunication/ICT Indicators: Measuring the Information Society and the ITU/ASEAN Meeting on Establishing National ICT Statistics Portals and Measuring ASEAN ICT Targets, which will be held on 13-16 October 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand. The Forum is supported by the Department of Communications, Government of Australia and is organised in partnerships with the ASEAN, the Asian Development Bank, the United Nations Project Office for Governance, and the Pacific Islands Telecommunications Association.
