1st Asia Pacific Information Superhighway Steering Committee

Over 100 international and regional ICT experts attended the first session of the Asia-Pacific Information Superhighway (AP-IS) Steering Committee held last November 1 - 2, 2017 at Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The event is a collaboration by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the Government of Bangladesh to enhance regional broadband connectivity as articulated in the Regional Road Map for Implementing Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development in Asia-Pacific.

The event addressed the broadband deficits among ESCAP member countries. It aims to enhance affordability, availability, reliability and resilience of the broadband infrastructure across the regions. The AP-IS Steering Committee meeting marked the first major step to operationalize the governance structure, develop regional and subregional implementation plans, identify challenges and opportunities and develop partnerships with international and regional organizations.
