This is my first time at ITU Telecom World and I was extremely fascinated that at the lunch table I had the government officials from Hungary, Tuvalu, someone from Tonga came over, one person from London representing the commonwealth telecom industry, there was tremendous diversity and viewpoints.   Astrid Tuminez, Regional Director, Corporate, External and Legal Affairs, South East Asia, Microsoft
We are facing the same challenges, looking for broadband connectivity and to avoid the digital divide, just the scale of the problem is so different, comparing for example what I am facing in Portugal to what the Indian regulator is facing. But our concerns are the same and we can learn from each other and this is amazing. Fatima Barros, Chair, ANACOM Board of Directors

It is extremely useful to be here because it is one-stop shop to meet our customers, our partners, the industry. There is value in what we do and there is value in the history. When you have been doing the same thing for 20 years and it works, I think it is a good idea to continue doing it. Jean Paul Chaib, Managing Director, LS telcom
I always find it a good place to connect with old friends but also to meet new people and get a sense of where governments are leaning in terms of ICT and policy and regulation. It is a great place to measure the pulse of the industry from the perspective of government, regulators and industry participants, to pressure test new ideas and really bring people into discussions. Peter Lyons, Community Lead, Telecommunications, WEF
The recognition that tech start-ups and young entrepreneurs are going to create the jobs and solutions and innovations of the future means being here at ITU Telecom World is critical. Jean Philbert Nsengimana, Minister, Ministry of Youth and ICT (MYICT), Rwanda
This is a real opportunity to come together as partners, share with each other what we are doing and create new opportunities for us to work together in the future. John Galvin, VP, Government & Education, Intel Corporation
I think it is a very important platform because it brings together a Forum, a place for regulators, officials and industry players to get together to share experiences and exchange views about ICT issues, and the exhibition is very important to showcase what is available and what is coming up in terms of trends for the ICT and telecom sector.

There is a huge benefit of being here, this is a great place to meet both telecom operators and regulators from around the world, a great opportunity to meet with government officials in developing countries, to be enthused by our efforts to bridge the digital divide; and it’s a very relaxed environment in which to do it.   Suneet Singh Tuli, CEO, Datawind
