Statement at Opening Press Conference GSR2012
ITU, and particularly my own Bureau, the Telecommunication Development Bureau, does a lot of work behind the scenes to promote global ICT development, through a wide range of expert reports, through on-the-ground projects, and through assistance to our Member States and industry partners.
The Global Symposium for Regulators is one of our more visible activities, and, to my mind, one of our most important.

It is a great honour to be here with you this morning and to speak on behalf of the ITU’s Secretary-General, Dr Touré, who unfortunately cannot be with us today.
Tunisia has a unique role and significance in the WSIS Process. Indeed, it was Tunisia that first proposed having a WSIS summit and which has hosted the Summit’s second phase. This has brought the Tunis Commitment and the Tunis Agenda for the Information Society.
