JAKARTA - Indonesia has been reelected as a member of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) for the 2010-2014 period, a Communication Ministry spokesman said.
"The reelection of Indonesia as a member of ITU was the result of the work hard of Indonesian delegates in conducting lobbying during the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference being held from October 4 to 22," Gatot S Dewa Broto, head of human relations affairs of the the Ministry of Communications and Informatics, said here on Tuesday.
He said that Indonesia had an interest in being reelected member of the Union because it had a large telecommunications market which was developing rapidly with progressive development activities.
Gatot said that Indonesia had taken an active part in the ITU Council's forums during its membership periods of 2002 - 2006 and 2006 - 2010.
With its reelection as a member of ITU for the 2010 - 2014 period, Indonesia would be able to fight for the interest of developing nations in the industrial field, particularly regarding Indonesia's interest in telecommunications, radio frequencies and satellite orbits, he said.
