APAC comms leaders meet in Perth
The Asia-Pacific Telecommunity (APT) Preparatory Group for the World Radiocommunication Conference 2019 (WRC-19) is meeting in Perth this week to discuss spectrum and satellite issues.
Around 350 delegates from more than 25 countries will discuss their views on proposed changes to global spectrum and satellite regulations.
This is the third of five meetings of the group, which give participating nations the opportunity to reach a consensus in the lead-up to next year’s WRC-19.
The meeting is being hosted by the federal government through the Department of Communications and the Arts, in partnership with the ACMA.
The secretary of the Department of Communications and the Arts, Mike Mrdak, delivered the inaugural address on Monday.
“The Australian Government is proud to be hosting the third meeting of the APT,” said Mrdak.
“We are honoured that Australia has again been trusted with such an important event in the Asia–Pacific radiocommunications calendar.”
This is the third time Australia has hosted the APT Preparatory Group for WRC.
