The ITU and the Korean government have extended a contract to help developing countries in the Asia-Pacific region design a new spectrum management framework.

The Republic of Korea has also agreed to fund a project to help developing Caribbean countries establish a spectrum management master plan.

Korea's Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning will contribute 150 million won ($138,000) to each project.

ITU and Korean officials signed an agreement at the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference in Busan last week.

This marks the first Korea-funded ITU project for the Caribbean region. The APAC spectrum management agreement was first established in December last year, and similar projects are being undertaken in the African region.

“As the leading nation in high speed internet connectivity worldwide, the Republic of Korea is in an excellent position to share its experiences and at the same time assist developing countries improve their internet connectivity and help reduce the digital divide,” said Brahima Sanou, director of the ITU Telecommunication Development Bureau.
