ITU Secretary General tries to calm WCIT waters
ITU Secretary-General Hamadoun Toure gave yet another speech urging calm over the WCIT conference that will take place in December.
Speaking on the first day of a three-day council working group whose job it is to prepare documents for the conference, Toure noted that "many of the fears, concerns, and criticisms" surrounding the conference were the same as when the regulations that will be reviewed in December were created back in 1998. "Those fears and concerns were unwarranted," he noted.
Toure also said that no issues would put be put to a vote but would be arrived at through consensus. He also highlighted the positive aspects that could come out of the conference. "WCIT is an opportunity to create a stable international regulatory framework providing the right conditions to allow markets to flourish globally."
