The 17th World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators Symposium (WTIS) will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, 1 to 3 December 2020. WTIS-20 is organized by the Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT) of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
The ITU World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators Symposium (WTIS) is the main global forum for telecommunication and information society measurements. Since 1996, the WTIS convenes government ministers, business leaders, regulators, national statisticians, top academics, and ICT data producers and analysts, from all parts of the globe, to discuss issues related to information society trends and their measurement. The adopted outcomes of discussions at the WTIS provide strategic guidance to the international community, including ITU, on future work priorities related to international harmonization of information society measurements. The work of the Expert Group on Telecommunication/ICT Indicators (EGTI) and the Expert Group on Household Indicators (EGH) will be presented for adoption by WTIS-20.
