World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators Meeting

Geneva, Switzerland
11-13 October 2006


Final Report/Conclusions


The fifth World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators (WTI) Meeting took place in Geneva from 11 to 13 October 2006. This meeting,  organized by the Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT) of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), has been taking place regularly since 1996.

The purpose of the meetings is to review the state of telecommunication/ICT statistics, definitions, collection, methodology and dissemination. The focus of this year’s WTI Meeting will be the discussion of definitions and recent indicators. Since the telecommunication/ICT sector has been changing rapidly over the recent years, the indicators to measure the telecommunication/ICT sector need to be adapted accordingly. The impressive growth and changes in the mobile sector, particularly, call for the revision of existing definitions.

The results will also help BDT continuously adapt its activities on indicators to the evolving needs of the sector.
