In line with the results of WTSA-04, WTDC-06 and RA-07, and in accordance with Resolution 123 (Rev. Antalya, 2006), an ITU Regional Development Forum, focused in 2008 on “bridging the ICT standardization gap in developing countries” will take place in Brasilia, from 19 to 20 May 2008 at the headquarters of Anatel, the national regulatory authority of Brazil.

The ITU Regional Development Forum is intended for executives from national regulatory authorities, telecommunication operators, and service providers in the Americas region, who need to be kept abreast of the latest development in telecommunication/ICT standardization issues and become familiar with ITU activities, in particular those of the Study Groups.
