Hungary Is Hosting ITU Telecom World Conference, 9 – 12 September
State secretary Péter Sztáray and Houlin Zhao, the head of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), signed an agreement on hosting the ITU Telecom World conference.

The Hungarian government gladly agreed to host the conference, Sztáray said, adding that the number of participants — 5,000-6,000 business representatives from 130 countries — indicated the significance of the event.

The conference will be held at Budapest’s Hungexpo fair grounds from September 9 to 12, together with an exhibition linked to the event, he said, adding that Hungarians would be able to visit the exhibition free of charge.

Budapest also hosted the 2015 world conference of ITU, of which Hungary is a founding member.
