Now approaching our 32nd consecutive annual conference, the Pacific Telecommunications Council looks forward to welcoming our members and all professionals in telecommunications and ICT endeavors to PTC’10.
This year, challenges and opportunities stand in stark contrast. We have all felt the impacts of a very challenging worldwide economic recession. At the same time, tremendous new opportunities are presenting themselves and organizations throughout the Asia-Pacific region and worldwide are well into capitalizing on them.
PTC’10 offers an important and substantial platform for understanding where we are and for providing insights to where we may be heading. As is our tradition in providing forward thinking, this year’s theme reflects the opportunities innovation provides across a wide range of interests. We are also conscious of the major challenges not only in developed economies, but also continuing efforts to connect the unconnected and provision of appropriate systems and services in developing economies.
