Axon is delighted to announce that several team members have been appointed as Vice-Rapporteurs for ITU-D Study Groups.

ITU-D Study Groups offer a platform for ITU members to share experiences, exchange views and build consensus on appropriate strategies to address ICT development priorities, guiding associated policies, strategies, projects and ICT initiatives in ITU Member States.

Having joined as a full member in 2016, Axon has been an advocate of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a specialised agency of the United Nations responsible for matters related to information and communication technologies.

The Axon team members appointed as Vice-Rapporteurs are:

  • Jorge Martínez, Partner – Study Group 1, Question 4/1: Economic aspects of national telecommunications/ICTs
  • Jesús Carballal, Partner – Study Group 1, Question 1/1: Strategies and policies for the deployment of broadband in developing countries
  • Paulina Pastor, Principal – Study Group 1, Question 5/1: Telecommunications/ICTs for rural and remote areas
  • Álvaro Neira, Principal – Study Group 2, Question 1/2: ​Smart sustainable cities and communities
  • Samuel Tew, Senior Manager – Study Group 2, Question 3/2: Securing information and communication networks: Best practices for developing a culture of cybersecurity.

The Axon team members are looking forward to working with all group participants to exchange knowledge and views to advance strategies addressing ICT development priorities throughout the world.

This milestone contributes to further strengthening the strategic partnership between Axon and ITU, and is followed by Axon’s recent contribution to the Partner2Connect Digital Coalition on cybersecurity matters earlier this year.
