USTTI Pursues Training Partnership with the ITU
In a speech last week at the ITU World Telecommunication Development Conference in Istanbul, Turkey, USTTI Board member, David Gross - Deputy Assistant Secretary, Coordinator for International and Communications and Information Policy, U.S. Department of State - announced that the USTTI will be pursuing ways to enhance training opportunities for the developing world, including a cooperative training arrangement between the USTTI and the ITU. Such a partnership could enable the USTTI to provide its cutting-edge tuition-free training to even more women and men from throughout the developing world.

The USTTI's 20th year of tuition-free training began last week with course M2-106, "Radio Frequency Spectrum Management," sponsored by the NTIA and Comsearch. A dynamic group of 15 women and men from 11 different developing countries are now at the NTIA facilities at the Department of Commerce in Washington, DC for two weeks of intensive spectrum management training. This course also marks the NTIA's 20th year of partnership with the USTTI in providing essential tuition-free training.

DC Blooms into Spring
The first few groups of USTTI participants are fortunate to be in Washington, DC for the kickoff of the National Cherry Blossom Festival.
