On behalf of the Mexican Government, I would like to
welcome you all to ITU’s Plenipotentiary Conference,
in Guadalajara, Mexico, on 4–22 October 2010.
For Mexicans, it is a great honour that you have
chosen us to host such an important event.
The international community today faces unprecedented
challenges in telecommunications. Our task
is to agree on solutions. We are at a key point, where
our individual views are converging to create global
strategies that can contribute significantly to the development
and growth of our societies.
In our country, we are working to create an appropriate
environment to promote competency,
competitiveness and convergence in the telecommunication

of diverse programmes, we have managed

provision of services.
We are confident that the plans and decisions
that result from this conference will contribute to a
more equitable and prosperous world, by extending
communications and information to all the planet’s
I am really looking forward to working with you
in Guadalajara, and hope that you have a very successful
