World Telecommunication Development Conferences

 

The International Telecommunication Union, through the Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT), organizes a World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC) every four years and a number of Regional Preparatory Meetings within that same period.

 

Telecommunication Development Conferences serve as forums for free discussion by all concerned with the Development Sector. In addition, they review the numerous programmes and projects of the Sector and BDT. Results are reported and new projects are launched. Development Conferences set the agenda and the guidelines for the following four-year cycle.

 

Regional Preparatory Meetings bring together the countries in each region to explore and discuss their needs and the present and future projects of the Sector.​​​​
