ITU's management team for the next four years

Plenipotentiary Conference 2010, 4-22 October, Guadalajara, Mexico

ITU's management team for the next four yearsWith the re-election in Guadalajara of myself as Secretary-General, Houlin Zhao as Deputy Secretary-General and Malcolm Johnson as Director of TSB, and the fresh election of François Rancy as Director of BR and Brahima Sanou as Director of BDT, we now have a powerful management team in place to carry out the Union’s work from 2011 to 2014.


We have a strong mandate from membership, and we have much to achieve over the next four years. We will therefore be counting on the continuing efforts of each and every member of ITU staff, as well as our Sector and Associate Members, to deliver on the promises made at the Plenipotentiary Conference in Guadalajara.


We will need to be productive, efficient and effective in our daily work if we are to meet our goals, and I am confident that the spirit of cooperation and partnership which has seen our great Union stay proud through the past 145 years will see us chart our way safely through the coming four years.

In particular, the focus will be on:  

  • The availability of ICT and broadband infrastructure for all citizens, including those living in the most challenging places (Least Developed Countries, Small Island Developing States, landlocked countries, etc).
  • A stable, flexible spectrum regime that can support the technical and commercial dynamism of this amazing sector.
  • Efficient and collaborative standards leadership that promote worldwide connectivity and accessibility, and the ability to rapidly adapt to innovation and evolving public and consumer needs.
  • A membership empowered by the latest information and best practices, and the continued updating of our skills.
  • An active recognition that young people and women matter a great deal and must be central to our agenda.
