Business Development through Telecom Growth

International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is intended to sponsor more professional training programs in Pakistan as a part of their campaign to develop more capacity in the telecommunications sector.

Recently, the ITU-PTA Asia-pacific Regulators Roundtable and the ITU-PTA International Training Program (ITP) 2016 started. This event was organized by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and ITU. Representatives from more than 20 countries of the Asia-pacific region attended this event.

Roundtable of regulators is specifically important because it is the first symposium in the region since the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This event also discussed the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

This event highlighted how ICT (information and communication technologies) has formed the base of economic and social development growth in Pakistan. ICT has immense potential to improvise development outcomes in both the developed and developing world. Economic development, social inclusion, and environmental protection are the pillars of sustainable development, which needs ICT to accelerate sustainable development and finally achieve the SDGs.

Asia-Pacific region took an independent initiative to organize the annual roundtable in order to give telecommunication/ICT regulators in the region, a platform to foster strategic and dynamic discussion, alongside sharing information, practices, and relevant experiences. The discussion is based on possible solutions and opportunities for the potential collaboration to address the emerging regulatory issues and challenges. Undoubtedly, Pakistan is passing through a telecom revolution, which is quite apparent among telecom companies giving more subscribers in the 3G and 4G segment.
