It was a great pleasure to launch the ITU–D Sector Members Portal at ITU Telecom World 2009, which took place in Geneva in October. With more than 150 guests attending the launch, it was a lively event. It was also an opportunity to express my appreciation for Sector Members’ participation in the activities of ITU’s Telecommunication Development Sector (ITU–D), and to encourage those who had not yet done so to join the fifty companies already represented in the portal. I am pleased to say that the number has now risen to more than sixty.

The portal’s aim is to showcase information on ITU–D Sector Members and to strengthen communication between them and the Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT). It provides them with an invaluable means to enhance their visibility and take advantage of networking opportunities.

Besides presenting an external source of information, the portal offers a useful new tool for consulting data on Sector Members. The logo of each entity is displayed, linking to a short profile and the Sector Member’s own website. There is also a facility for subscribing to RSS feeds of news from the wide range of companies and others that use the portal. To facilitate networking, filter and navigation tools make it possible to search for information by such parameters as region, country, or type of activity.

The Partnership, Promotion and Membership team of BDT is continuing to update and improve the portal, and I strongly encourage ITU–D Sector Members to contact us and participate. I believe the portal is an important element in achieving the BDT’s goal of serving the interests of Sector Members and providing them with the services they deserve.

The ITU–D Sector Members Portal is accessed at
