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.
