World Conference on International Telecommunications to be held in UAE

Thu 29 Nov, 2012 // Firstnumber Team

The United Arab Emirates and its Telecommunications Regulatory Authority will next week play host to the World Conference on International Telecommunications. Held from 3-14 December and organised by the United Nations' International Telecommunication Union (ITU) agency, the conference will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

On the agenda is a review of the International Telecommunications Regulations, a global treaty that governs the telecommunications industry. The treaty is designed to ease crossborder communication and interoperability, ensuring efficient service and availability. It has been signed by 178 countries.

Considered one of the industry's most important events, the conference will gather participants from all ITU member states, as well as delegates from national and regional industry bodies, multinational organisations which operate satellite systems, the International Atomic Energy Agency and more.

An invitation has also been issued to the CEO of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. His presence is hoped to encourage constructive debate on mobile roaming, cyber security, dealing with spam and other topics relevant to the contemporary communications industry.

The ITU is the UN agency that looks after issues related to information and communication technology. Its three major areas of operation are radiocommunication, standardisation and development.
