Turk­me­nis­tan in the world in­for­ma­tion space

15 April 2022

Having em­bar­ked on the path of in­novative develop­ment, Turk­me­nis­tan in­tends to expand coo­pe­ra­tion with the In­ter­na­tio­nal Te­lecom­mu­nication Union (ITU). In this con­necti­on, a Work Plan for in­te­racti­on with ITU for 2022 is being develo­ped.

A cen­tu­ry and half ago, two do­zen count­ries, the most develo­ped at that ti­me, rea­li­sed that the furt­her develop­ment of com­mu­nications and the exchan­ge of in­for­ma­tion requi­red the develop­ment of univer­sal stan­dards and ag­ree­ments. This is how the In­ter­na­tio­nal Te­lecom­mu­nication Union was es­tab­lis­hed. To­day, ITU is the lea­ding UN agency in the field of in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­nication techno­lo­gies. Its work involves not on­ly 193 count­ries as mem­ber sta­tes, but al­so sector and as­sociate mem­bers and acade­mic or­ga­ni­sa­tions: private sector, scien­ti­fic and educatio­nal ins­ti­tu­tions and in­ter­na­tio­nal and re­gio­nal or­ga­ni­sa­tions. This is what the unique­ness of ITU li­es in, and this ma­kes it an ef­fective plat­form that brings to­get­her all par­ticipants in the ICT/te­lecom­mu­nications. ITU’s activities are ai­med at sup­por­ting count­ries in the imp­le­men­ta­tion of their ICT/te­lecom­mu­nication develop­ment stra­te­gies and expan­ding in­ter­na­tio­nal coo­pe­ra­tion in this di­recti­on.
