For four days earlier this month, members of Asia's information and communications technology (ICT) sector convened at ITU Telecom Asia, focusing on core issues relating to ICT expansion across the region. The event featured the latest technologies and innovations -- including Amateur Radio -- as well as an extensive forum that explored key technologies, policies and applications.

The IARU, in an effort to promote the benefits of the Amateur Radio Service throughout the region, participated in the event. The IARU booth was organized by IARU Region 3 with assistance from the Radio Amateur Society of Thailand (RAST), the IARU Member-Society in that country.

IARU Region 3 Director Gopal Madhavan, VU2GMN, said that while at ITU Telecom Asia, ITU Secretary General Dr Hamadoun I Toure, HB9EHT, and Dr Eun-Ju Kim, Head of the ITU Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, visited the IARU booth, staying and talking with hams and visitors for more than half an hour.
