Just thought I would share some images from the recently completed opening ceremony of the ITU’s 2014 Plenipotentiary meeting in Busan. This featured very sophisticated presentations of the Republic of Korea’s achievements in the field of ICTs, as well as the beauty of its traditional culture and dance. South Korea is certainly an absolutely fascinating place, in which we have been made to feel most welcome. It was good to see the emphasis placed on the use of ICTs by people with disabilities, and also Hamadoun Touré’s commitment to finding ways through which ICTs can be used to help resolve the current Ebola crisis in western Africa (see my regularly updated blog post on ways through which ICTs can indeed contribute).
Sorry I could not post these live during the event, but the WiFi system was down while President Park Geun-hye was in the room. Let’s hope we all have a fruitful and productive Plenipot meeting.
