Qatar Participates in the ITU Council Meeting

Doha, June 4, 2024: The State of Qatar, represented by the Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA), is participating in the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Council meeting, held in Geneva, Switzerland, from June 4 to 14, 2024. The Qatari delegation is led by Engineer Ahmad Abdulla Al Muslemani President of CRA.


CRA participates in the meeting as an observer member of the ITU Council, composed of 48 ITU Member States, acts as the Union’s governing body in the interval between ITU plenipotentiary conferences, which is held every four years.


The Council meeting ensures that the Union’s activities, policies, and strategies fully respond to the rapidly evolving telecommunications environment. Also, it ensures the smooth day-to-day running of the Union, coordinating work programmes, approving budgets, and controlling finances and expenditure. Key agenda items include discussions about the achievements of the Strategic Plan of the Union for 2023-2024 and discussing the operational plans of the Union 2025-2028.


During the meeting, CRA will deliver a comprehensive presentation on Qatar's preparations to host the Plenipotentiary Conference in 2026 (PP-26). Additionally, CRA has a booth featuring interactive content highlighting Qatar's readiness to welcome the participating delegations. The booth also offers visitors an opportunity to learn about Qatar's evolving Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector.


The Plenipotentiary Conference is the highest policy-making body of the ITU. This is the key event for the ITU Member States to determine the future role of the organization and thereby the organization’s ability to influence the development of ICTs worldwide. Hosting this conference in Qatar will enhance opportunities for collaboration with stakeholders, contributing to attracting future investments and partnerships. This, in turn, will enhance the growth of the ICT sector towards supporting Qatar National Vision 2030 and the Third Qatar National Development Strategy, which include providing world-class telecom services and improving the quality of life for citizens and residents.
