World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC) Chairman, 2014
I believe ITU-D is, and will continue to be, an excellent neutral facilitator between governments, private sectors and civil society in implementing programs, projects and initiatives related to ICT development. I call on all stakeholders to
strengthen their support to the ITU-D Sector to help facilitate the promotion of affordable and accessible broadband infrastructure. Only appropriate policy and strategy will enable and foster innovation. They will also drive the development
of national and global economies as well as of the information society.
