U.S. Support for Doreen Bogdan-Martin
The United States strongly supports Doreen Bogdan-Martin in her campaign to become the next Secretary General of the ITU and her vision for universal connectivity to ensure that everyone in the world is digitally empowered. With origins dating to the telegraph era, the ITU exists to foster the connectivity and interoperability of the world’s telecommunications networks. It does important work in support of radio spectrum management, telecommunications standards, and critical development initiatives to close the digital divide. Responsible, forward-looking, inclusive, and transparent leadership of the ITU is vital to the U.S. telecommunications interests, as well as U.S. defense, intelligence, economic, development, and aeronautics priorities.
