WELCOME TO THE ASIA-PACIFIC TELECOMMUNITY
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the APT’s website. This website is designed to provide a comprehensive and in-depth information about APT and our activities, reflecting the pride we, as the Telecommunity, have in our continuing growth and contributions towards telecommunication and ICT development in the Asia-Pacific region.
APT has a rich history of promoting cooperation and fostering a qualitative and sustainable growth of telecom and ICT services. From the joint initiatives of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in 1976, the APT has now become a unique regional organization that contributes to the Asia-Pacific region’s impressive progress in broadband infrastructure and services development, bridging of the digital divide and sustainable growth of ICT.
We take on a broad range of activities designed to engage our members, the corporate sector and government agencies in platforms for sharing of their experiences, techniques, and challenges in developing ICT applications and services. Through our Work Programme which is developed to cater for the needs of our members and areas of common interest of the region, we have achieved success in supporting our own fundamental rationale: to assist our members in various fronts of development including telecommunication infrastructure, policy and regulatory issues and capacity building. We also play a key role in harmonizing and promoting the views of the Asia-Pacific Region on the global scene through our preparatory meetings particularly for the ITU conferences.
On behalf of the APT, I invite you to explore our website and learn more about what we provide to the Telecommunity and I wholeheartedly welcome any constructive feedback you may have.
