GMPCS-MoU

Geneva, 14 February 1997

Comments of the Ministry of Information and Communication (Republic of Korea)
on the Memorandum of Understanding

As described in the letter on 29 November 1996, I am honoured to submit the suggestion on the MoU herewith. We would like to add the following sentence to the Article 1 of the MoU after its last paragraph as below:

"In order to expedite the development of the arrangements on the type approval of terminals, the system operators and manufacturers shall develop the means such as opening terminals' technical specifications at an appropriate time and lowering the royalties be developed not to monopolize the manufacturing of terminals."

I would very much appreciate if the suggestion could be reflected in the MoU. So, the benefit of the GMPCS system would have been spread all over the globe. Thank you so much for your effort in this regard.
