Nigeria promises active participation @ITU Telecom World ‘15

The Nigeria’s participation in the forthcoming International Telecommunications Union (ITU) organised Telecom World 2015 in Budapest, Hungary later this year has been promised to be very active, reports ITRealms.

The three-day event slate for October 12-15, 2015, ITRealms gathered that Nigerian delegation would stand out, as the Federal Government through its agencies has set up a Local Organising Committee (LOC) to raise awareness and encourage participation of the country, with Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) coming on focus.

Confirming this plans, the Chairman, Media and Publicity Sub- Committee and Director, Public Affairs NCC, Mr. Tony Ojobo, said a Committee has been constituted and made up of officials of Ministry of Communications, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Galaxy Backbone, Nigerian Communications Satellite Ltd (NigComSat), Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST), and Universal Service Provision Fund (USPF) among others to put together plans for Nigeria’s participation.

According to Ojobo, Nigeria wants to make a big statement in this year’s participation when a large number of SMEs will be on ground to dwell around the theme of this year’s event: Innovation To make Lives Better and Faster.

He also said that Nigeria’s participation will build on the reality that regulatory robustness has led to a spiral growth in voice telephony and look beyond that by coming out with innovative products to improve the lives of the citizens.

ITU, he said, on its part has listed five key reasons why countries, individuals, corporate organisations should participate in the Hungary event.

Besides exceptional knowledge sharing, opportunities, he explained that ITU Telecom World 2015 under the Chief Host  Mr. Houlin Zhao, ITU Secretary General, will focus on accelerating innovation and growth of SMEs and innovative networking opportunities. Of particular interest is the role SMEs play in driving national economies.

“One of the key concerns of the Hungarian government is to provide a balanced and predictable business environment where SMEs can easily find support or exploit business opportunities. This is what the country wants to share with participants in Budapest,” he said.

Nigeria, Ojobo said, will showcase at ITU Telecom World this year, the SME ecosystem guided by the experience.

He pointed out that the event will focus on the crucial role of innovation and entrepreneurship in the fast growing ICT ecosystem, covering a broad-based international audience with specific outreach to SMEs and startups from across the world, as well as leading global ICT players, policy makers, regulators, industry experts and investors.
