WTDC-2002 Newsroom

1,500 top-ranking delegates from government, the private sector, international and regional organizations are expected to attend the World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC) held in Istanbul from 18 to 27 March, 2002 at the invitation of the Government of Turkey.

The purpose of the Conference is to agree on development priorities in view of the high-level recognition of the Digital Divide between developing and developed nations created by the rapid but uneven expansion of information and communication technologies (ICTs). Another objective of the Conference will be to promote international cooperation and partnerships that can sustain and strengthen telecommunication infrastructure and institutions in developing countries.

In the WTDC-2002 newsroom, media will find background information to assist them in better understanding the issues and work to be achieved by the Conference. All material found on this site can be used for reporting purposes.
