Why the World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly is so important (VIDEO)

By ITU News-

The World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly (WTSA) is an ITU governing conference held every four years for ITU members to define the strategic direction and structure of the ITU Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T).

The overarching objective of WTSA is to ensure that ITU-T remains well positioned to support the development of the Information Society.

Standardization is a tool that provides vital assistance to information and communication technology (ICT) innovation, and WTSA-16 is an opportunity to ensure that ITU-T provides its membership with a standardization toolkit optimized to assist government and industry in achieving their priorities for 2020 and beyond.
