ITU Regional Presence
ITU's policy on regional presence is designed to enable the Union to work as closely as possible with its members and to tailor ITU activities to meet the ever-increasing and diverse needs of the world's developing and least developed countries. ITU currently manages a network of eleven field offices. These include regional offices in Addis Ababa (for Africa), Brasilia (for Americas), Cairo (for the Arab States), Bangkok (for Asia and Pacific) and Moscow (for Europe and CIS countries) and a number of area offices in each of these regions.

ITU Regional Offices

ITU field offices provide support for all Union activities, helping implement its strategic and policy objectives through direct, sustained contact with national authorities, regional telecommunication organizations and other relevant bodies.

They also assist developing and least developed countries to meet their development goals. In addition to providing technical and logistical support to development activities, field offices fulfil the basic functions of the development sector as a specialized and executing agency, resource mobilizer and information centre.

ITU's regional presence serves also to assist the ITU General Secretariat, the Radiocommunication Bureau and the Telecommunication Standardization Bureau in fulfilling their missions by:

  • promoting their work, representing them at regional and national events
  • assisting them in organizing events of a regional character in their respective domain of activities or in joint activities with BDT
  • representing ITU's elected officials at regional events
  • expressing the visions and the needs of the countries in the different domains of activities and proposing actions for responding to their needs.
