Australia re-elected to International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Council

Australia has been re-elected to the ITU Council at the 2022 Plenipotentiary Conference (PP-22) in Romania

Australia is honoured and proud to have been re-elected as an ITU Council  member for Region E (Asia and Australasia).

We will continue to work collaboratively with Council members to ensure the ITU can meet the challenges arising from rapid changes in the global telecommunications environment.

Australia actively promotes a diverse, inclusive and open ITU, where member states, sector members, associates and academia can share ideas and work collaboratively.

We have been an active Council member for Region E (Asia and Australasia) since 1959 and we work hard to get the best outcomes for our region and the broader ITU.

Australia's support and direct involvement with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and its predecessor organisation dates back to 1878.

The ITU is a United Nations specialised agency bringing together governments and industry to develop efficient and affordable global telecommunication networks and services. It focuses on standardisation, radio spectrum management, and the development of and access to information communication technology.
