International Telecommunication Union

The ITU is the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies – ICT.

The ITU allocates global radio spectrum and satellite orbits, develops the technical standards that ensure networks and technologies seamlessly interconnect, and strives to improve access to ICT to underserved communities worldwide.

The ITU objectives are to provide everyone with the easy and affordable access to information and communication, aimed at providing tangible assistance in the socio-economic development of the interests of all people.

Since joining the ITU in 1993 as a full-fledged member, Kazakhstan has actively participated in solving the problems of the fast-paced developing ICT sector of the ITU Member States and has been cooperating in the domain of innovation.

Participating in the ITU work at various international conferences, Kazakhstan has always enjoyed the support of the ITU members in addressing strategically important issues for the country's info-communicational sector. By sharing its ideas and experience Kazakhstan gets an opportunity to learn about the latest achievements in the participating countries in the ICT development field.

Mutual partnership takes on a specific significance today when the industry is rapidly developing and passed decisions have important political, social and financial consequences.

Among the projects implemented in Kazakhstan under the ongoing ITU support there is implementation of the e-government, digital TV, ADSL, CDMA, FTTH, 3G, 4G, etc. as well as registration of Kazakhstan's satellites frequency allocation in the Master International Frequency Register (MIFR) for communication, broadcasting and Earth remote sensing which successfully operate in orbit.
