Arlington, VA (April 4, 2014) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today applauded the work of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), World Telecommunications Development Conference 2014, to define the agenda for the ITU Development Sector for the next four-year period.  The ongoing two-week conference will focus on a broad range of policy issues relevant to the adoption and application of information and communication technologies (ICTs) by developing countries.
