Geneva, 7 February 2012 – With just four weeks to go before top government and industry leaders from the Arab region and around the world convene in Doha, Qatar to debate technology policy and priorities in areas like broadband and next-generation mobile, media are urged to accredit now for ITU’s Connect Arab Summit (5-7 March).
The event will welcome Heads of State, prominent industry CEOs, ICT regulators, leaders from the international investment community and civil society groups. It will play an instrumental role in defining national and regional ICT strategies for the coming decade, in a world where broadband has become the key enabler of business and social service delivery. It will also see the announcement of a raft of exciting projects that will further energize the ICT sector right across the region.
