“COVID-19 has generated a huge demand for more ICT services and more advanced technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence, and cloud computing – but it has also revealed deep digital inequalities between those who are connected and those who are not,” said ITU Secretary-General Houlin Zhao during his opening video message. “We need a new strategy based on smart and innovative policies that can attract more investments in ICT infrastructure, and we need a new way of working together”.
Despites of Ministerial Roundtable, a number of forums and virtual exhibitions are being organized as part of the ITU Digital World 2020. Please see following link to visit the event.
