ICT Minister to speak at major telcos summit

16 October 2014, 18:24

Abuja - Minister of Information and Communications Technology, Omobola Johnson, will lead a delegation to Qatar for the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Telecom World 2014.

The leading platform for debate, networking and showcasing for the global ICT community is scheduled for the capital, Doha, from December 7–10.

According to a statement, Johnson will be among an array of visionary speakers drawn from government and the private sector to speak at the event.

“The quality and breadth of world-class speakers gathering at ITU Telecom World 2014 will provide expert insight and analysis of the ICT sector at this critical period of transformation," said ITU Secretary-General Hamadoun I Touré.

“The event promises to be a uniquely important opportunity to harness the potential of ICTs to shape our future.”

Held under the theme “Future in Focus”, debates will centre on three core topics: industry disruption, cross-sector partnerships and the intelligent future, each examined from the contrasting perspectives of business, technology and policy.
