The 14th World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators Symposium (WTIS) will take place on 21-23 November 2016, in Botswana. The Symposium is organised by the Telecommunication Development Bureau of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), and hosted by the Government of Botswana.
As a global forum for telecommunication and information society measurements, WTIS includes high-level debates on key questions related to information and communications technology (ICT) policy and data. It brings together delegates from all over the world, ranging from ministers and business leaders to regulators, national statisticians, lead academics, and ICT data producers and analysts. The objective of the Symposium is to debate new and emerging issues on ICT data and statistics, and their role in policy making, and to provide strategic guidance to the international community on information society trends and future monitoring. It also develops standards and methodologies for producing high-quality data and statistical indicators.
