The agreement was signed in Seoul by Dr Touré and Korea’s Minister of Science, ICT and Future Planning, Choi Mun-Kee.
"This agreement is a major landmark on the road to PP-14,"said Dr Touré. "A sound and solid host country agreement is indispensable to a successful conference, and I am very pleased to see that, here in Korea, the internal preparatory process is also moving forward with confidence."
Dr Touré congratulated the host country on its commitment to arriving at a mutually-agreed contract that will pave the way to the next major milestone in ITU’s 148-year history.
PP-14 will take place at Bexco, Busan’s state-of-the-art exhibition and convention centre, with the Korean government planning a number of side-events to complement the conference. Details can be found on the host country website: www.itupp2014.org/en_main/?en_popup=1
