MANILA, Philippines- Napili ang Pilipinas na maging bahagi ng International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Council, sa ika-apat na consecutive four-year term, ayon sa Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) nitong Martes.

Inihayag ng DICT na kabilang ang bansa sa 13 states na pinili mula sa Asia at Australia region — kasama ang Australia, Bahrain, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, at United Arab Emirates — sa ITU Council.

Nanalo ang Pilipinas sa re-election sa ITU Council sa plenipotentiary conference ng ahensya sa Bucharest, Romania noong Oktubre 3, 2022.

Inilahad ng DICT na 193 member-states ng ITU ang namili ng 48 bansa na mamumuno sa governing council ng bansa.

Ang ITU ay ang United Nations specialized agency para sa information and communication technologies (ICTs).

Ang DICT ang kinatawan ng Pilipinas sa ITU.

“The DICT looks forward to working with all our stakeholders both in the public and private sectors to attain our common aspirations of a digitally empowered Philippines. As a country, we are very eager to take an active part in building a better digital future for all as our commitment under the Bucharest Declaration,” pahayag ni DICT Secretary Ivan John Uy.

“This new mandate to sit among 48 member states out of 193 in the International Telecommunications Union reinforces our commitment to fully embrace digital transformation as a major strategy for national development,” dagdag niya.

“To us in government, it may be just work, but for others it may mean their lives, their food, their education, their health. Let’s help the world in the next four years with every knowledge, every sharing we can share. The PH is blessed to stand among nations and have a voice in the next four years. Let us show the world that DICT is a government agency of global standards. Let us use this seat, this voice to help build a better digital future,” sabi naman ni ICT Undersecretary Jocelle Batapa-Sigue.

Gayundin, sinabi ni Uy na ang ITU Council “will allow the DICT to lead our country’s involvement in discussions and decisions that will significantly shape the future of the world.” RNT/SA
