    100 Young People from around the World Meet at ITU Telecom Africa’s Youth Forum

    Date published: 7 May 2008

    A total of 100 young people from 45 countries are taking part in the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Youth Forum to be held on the sidelines of ITU Telecom Africa 2008 due from 11–15 May, 2008 in Cairo. Egypt, as the ITU Telecom Africa 2008 hosting country, will sponsor the forum and its activities.
    Participants are expected to discuss a broad range of topics such as enabling technologies and their applications, ICT policies and regulations and finance and business.

    Held periodically on the periphery of the ITU events worldwide, the forum aims to help the youth explore, develop, analyze, evaluate and disseminate ideas. As a result of discussions, the youth explore facts and experiences gathered by the ITU and the broader telecommunication industry about ICTs.

    This, in turn, enables exceptionally talented university students from all ITU Member States to share their ideas and access ICTs.

    Created by the ITU in 2001, the youth forum has built an outstanding reputation for knowledge sharing. The Youth Forum is managed by the ITU in collaboration with ITU Member States, ITU Regional Offices, other International Organizations, Industry Representatives and Universities.
