ITU Connected Arab States Summit

ITU's Connect Arab States Summit is the third in a series of regional events aimed at mobilizing resources to support a rapid, region-wide transition to broadband digital infrastructure and services. By bringing together key global and regional players in the sector, the summit will help generate the human, financial and technical resources needed to support ICT growth in Qatar and the Arab region.

Hosted by ictQATAR, the event will attract regional leaders from public and private sectors, financial institutions and international and regional financing and development agencies.
