ABU DHABI: The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority, TRA, headed the UAE delegation at the 17th Arab Information and Communication Technology, ICT Ministerial Council meeting, which took place recently in Algeria.

Senior TRA officials, including Majid Al Mesmar, deputy director-general of TRA, and Nasser Bin Hammad, director of international affairs, were part of the UAE delegation.

Dr Zahra Dardouri, minister of post, information technologies and communication in Algeria, chaired the meeting, which was attended by twelve countries as well as representatives from each state of the Gulf Cooperation Council, the Arab Regional Office of the International Telecommunications Union, ITU and the Arab Organisation of Communication in Tunis.

The meeting’s agenda included a range of regionally important topics, all of which have been submitted by the Arab Permanent Committee for Postal Affairs held prior to the Ministerial Committee meeting, where Ministers agreed on numerous measures regarding the adoption of a new structure of working groups to ensure consistency in operations.

The participants also discussed the third Arab Stamp Exhibition held in September in Saudi Arabia with the participation of a number of UAE postal institutions including Emirates Post Group.

During the meeting the Post Regional Development Plan, 2013-2016, was approved.

The ministerial council agreed upon a number of critical ICT projects including the regional internet Arabic networks linkage project, where the members stressed the need for participation, urging the private sector to join in the effort and work closely with the operational team responsible for driving the project.

The council also recommended preparatory measures for each of the upcoming international ICT conferences taking place next year, namely the 2014 ITU Plenipotentiary Conference and the World Telecommunication Development Conferences.
