by ITU News
Member States today elected Tomas Lamanauskas of Lithuania as the next Deputy Secretary-General of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies.
The election, completed in one round, took place at the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference (PP-22) currently underway in Bucharest, Romania.
Lamanauskas has pledged to foster broad partnerships for connectivity; to increase ITU and industry ambitions on net-zero emissions and climate sustainability; and to integrate results-based management into all ITU processes.
“The only way to find solutions is to come together to look for them, with open hearts and open minds,” Lamanauskas said.
“Let’s work hard to bring the digital future for all – and more importantly, let’s do that together.”
In this key executive role, Mr Lamanauskas will assist ITU’s next Secretary-General, Doreen Bogdan-Martin (U.S.), who was elected separately earlier in the day.
