ITU has started an open, transparent and inclusive process of elaboration of the new ITU Strategic Plan for 2020-2023. A Council Working Group has been established in May 2017 to draft the plan to be presented to ITU Council in April 2018. The group will conduct, amongst others, 3 public consultations during the period June 2017 – March 2018, the first one open until July 7 2017. This presentation describes ITU’s current strategy, analyses lessons learned and anticipates some of the key developments to be considered when developing the future strategy. Everyone is invited to submit views on the key strategic priorities for the Union, the key technological trends to be considered, the main challenges, as well as the achievements you would like to see being accomplished by the ITU in the 2020-2023 timeframe. ITU aims at establishing a truly multi-stakeholder vision for its role in the 2020-2023 period, to help bring everyone online, to ensure that the global communications infrastructure runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible, and to enable everybody to access the benefits of ICTs.
