In the run up to ITU TELECOM WORLD 2009, Mr Houlin Zhao, ITU Deputy Secretary-General and acting Executive Manager of ITU TELECOM, will be speaking at the World Congress on ICT for Development (WCID'09) in Beijing, reinforcing his commitment to ICT development in China and around the world. "We have come a long way in the journey towards a connected world," commented Mr Zhao. "And many nations like China are helping to push the bounderies of what we know in telecommunications. But there is growth potential beyond existing, maturing and emerging telecom markets. If we continue to focus on working together to develop relevant products and services that meet the combined needs of citizens globally, societies and economies will reap the rewards."
