Regional Preparatory Meetings
While the CWG-WCIT-12 constitutes the preparatory process for WCIT-12, Resolution 171
(Guadalajara, 2010) instructs the Secretary-General to support any regional preparatory meetings, in coordination with the regional telecommunication organizations, which may be called prior to WCIT-12. The Secretary-General has sent a letter to these organizations requesting their assistance. Regional preparatory meetings for WCIT-12
will be held back-to-back with the regional preparatory meetings for WTSA-12.
