Driving the UN Agenda
UN General Assembly President (Mogens Lykketoft) in October last year in New York said the review of the implementation of the outcomes of the 2005 World Summit for the
Information Society (WSIS) is one of the most important processes taking place at the United Nations. In his opening address, he said: “Thanks to the rapid development of Information and Communications Technology and growth in global interconnectivity this past decade, ICT plays an increasingly important role in promoting economic and social progress in many parts of the world.” ICT professionalism was a strong theme of the talks, and the issue was highlighted by UN General Assembly President in his closing remarks: “Initiatives to strengthen confidence and security in the use of ICTs were recognized and appreciated. Some suggested that a commitment to professionalism and trustworthy conduct could be infused throughout the draft outcome document… Ladies and gentlemen, these are amongst the many points we heard today. These valuable contributions will be included in a President’s summary that I will circulate shortly… I will also bring your discussions to the attention of member states tomorrow.”
