Houlin Zhao ...adding depth to summit talks

ITU chief to attend Telecom Leaders' Summit in Dubai

DUBAI, May 8, 2016

International Telecommunication Union (ITU) secretary-general Houlin Zhao will attend the Samena Telecom Leaders’ Summit 2016, to be held in Dubai, UAE, this month.

Recognised as a must-attend event, the summit has been organised every year since 2010.  The event will be held on May 19.

As one of the most anticipated ICT thought leadership events in the region, the summit marks the 10th anniversary of Samena Telecommunications Council. Since its inception in 2006, the council has been playing an important role in regional developments in ICT, setting the agenda and representing the interests of operators from South Asia, Middle East and North Africa.

Today, Samena Telecommunications Council is at the forefront of the campaign for digitalization of economies, unifying the telecom industry voice, helping optimise the collaboration between operators, regulators and ICT industry service providers towards making a positive impact in the region’s socio-economic developments, said a statement.

Bocar A BA, CEO of the Samena Telecommunications Council, said: "I am pleased to welcome ITU secretary-general to the Telecom Leaders’ Summit. We will be hosting the captains of ICT industries at the summit with the aim of driving cross-stakeholder discussions around digitization of economies and Mr Zhao’s presence will add invaluable depth and international perspective to the dialogue. The summit will become the main stage facilitating policy, investment, regulation and infrastructure development debates. I expect stronger partnerships across geographies, businesses and agendas emerging from the Telecom Leaders’ Summit 2016.”

Participation at the summit is by invitation only. Most of the regional leaders representing network operators, regulatory authorities, ICT service providers and policy bodies from Asia and Europe have confirmed participation. This is Huawei’s third consecutive year as the host sponsor of the prestigious regional telecom thought leadership event. - TradeArabia News Service
