UAE elected member of ITSO committee

The UAE was elected a member of the International Telecommunications Satellite Organisation, or ITSO, Advisory Committee during the 35th Meeting of the Assembly of Parties held in Kampala, Uganda, in July of this year.

The UAE is among a group of 21 nations to comprise this advisory committee whose objective is to further the ITSO commitment to develop a global satellite communications system. This committee will represent the 150 members of the organisation to deliver upon this objective. A member nation to the ITSO, the UAE was represented by Hasan Al Suwaidi, UAE Ambassador in Kampala, who led a delegation that included Eng Khalid Al Awadhi, Manager, Space Services in the UAE Telecommunications Regulatory Authority.

Mohamad Ahmad Al Qamzi, Chairman, TRA Board of Directors said: “The UAE, through TRA representation, is often a part of international organizations that aim to augment the status of the global communications infrastructure and the status of less developed nations. As a progressive nation in the telecommunications field and a regional leader in ICT in the Middle East, the UAE is uniquely positioned to make a significant contribution to such agendas. The TRA’s Spectrum Affairs department is pleased to take on this responsibility and is looking forward to being a part of this esteemed mission.”
