Committed to connecting the world



​​​​The ITU Regional Development Forums provide the opportunity for dialogue between Regional Offices and decision-makers of ITU Member States and Sector Members on the activities carried out at the regional level.  

The RDFs will provide stakeholders with an opportunity to discuss the implementation of the 2018-2021 ITU Regional Initiatives​ approved by the World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC-17) held in Buenos Aires, Argentina. They ​also discuss matters related to Study Groups, Membership, Partnerships, ITU Centres of Excellence, as well as regional contributions to the implementation of WSIS Action Lines and SDGs. 

​RDFs are open to all stakeholders willing to strengthen cooperation and partnerships among telecommunication/ICT policy-makers, regulators, industry, academia, regional and international development agencies and organizations on specific regional telecommunication and ICT matters.​
