Important decisions (aside from Recommendations approvals)

Revised Terms of Reference for the SG13RG-AFR
The meeting reviewed the good progress to date and continuation in the next study period of the SG13 regional group for Africa with the revised Terms of Reference as appears in TD 255 (PLEN/13). This document has also a set of new priorities for the region that now includes the 5G, big data and trust. The new priorities as well as revised Terms of Reference were agreed by the meeting.

Questionnaires on cloud computing
At its April rapporteur group meeting Q5/13 reviewed the current status of the cloud computing questionnaires and corresponding liaison statement received from ITU-D and agreed to ask SG13 to dispatch these questionnaires. Texts of both questionnaires may be found in TD 284 (GEN/13).
As a result, the two questionnaires "Questionnaire for Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) on Cloud Computing Scenarios in Developing Countries" and "Questionnaire for Cloud Service Customers (CSCs) on Cloud Computing Scenarios in Developing Countries" were disseminated shortly after the meeting via Circular letters 221 and 222 inviting the replies from developing countries before the next meeting of SG13.

Correspondence Group on Trust
Correspondence group on Trust (CG-Trust), according to the extended mandate given to it at the last SG13 meeting (December 2015), accomplished its work and delivered the technical report "Trust provisioning for future ICT infrastructures and services". This document elaborates the trust concept in ICT, gives definition of the trust in the context of telecommunication environment and sets up the priorities for the standardization activities in this domain.
The technical report, TD 267 (PLEN/13), was agreed by the SG13 for publication. The correspondence group was closed leaving the further standardization efforts to be performed in SG13, Q16/13. CG final report to its parent SG may be found in TD 268 (PLEN/13).
