Proposal on International Telecommunications Connectivity (based on CWG-WCIT12/C-84)

Introduction

World countries have been making significant efforts to meet the Millenium Development Goals (MDG) as well as the goals of the World Summit on Information Society (WSIS). Thus, in many countries, the deployment of infrastructure for networks and for information and communication technology applications which use as much as possible broadband and other innovative technologies, has become a priority on their development agendas.

Governments have understood the need to set up public policies and the importance of regulating telecommunications that allow the acceleration of economic and social progress for their countries, as well as the wellbeing of all persons, communities and villages.

The role of governments includes the provision of a clear coherent and foreseeable legal framework in order to promote a favourable environment in which world networks, including Internet, be widely accessible to all citizens without any discrimination and in the management of Internet resources guarantee adequate protection of public interests.
