Telecom Minister in S. Korea to Attend PP-14

A high ranking delegation headed by the minister of communication and information technology, Mahmoud Vaezi has traveled to South Korea to take part in the 19th Plenipotentiary Conference (PP-14) of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in BEXCO, Busan.

The Plenipotentiary Conference is a key event at which ITU member states gather to decide on the future role of the organization, thereby determining the organization’s ability to influence the development of information and communication technologies (ICTs) worldwide.
The event will officially open on Monday and will last until Nov. 7, IRNA reported.
The conference is the top policy-making body of the ITU. Held every four years, it sets the union’s general policies; adopts four-year strategic and financial plans; and elects the senior management team of the organization, the members of council, and the members of the Radio Regulations Board.
Hussein Malek, general director of the ministry’s International Affairs and Strategic Studies said Minister Mahmoud Vaezi will explain Iran’s information and communication technology policies in a speech to be given on the first day of the conference.
More than 190 countries will attend the event, according to Malek, who said the minister is scheduled to meet with his counterparts on the sidelines of the conference to discuss the development of bilateral interactions.  The ITU is a specialized agency of the United Nations (UN) that is responsible for issues related to information and communication technologies.
