In its sixth edition, the 2018 Latin American Telecommunications Congress (CLT) shall be carried out in Cuba for the first time. The city of Varadero will receive the most important executives of the telecommunications ecosystem, ministers and regulators of the sector, international organizations and the most outstanding academics of the region.
Digital Economy in Latin America and public policies for innovation, as well as competence in the convergence era will be some of the main subjects of the 2018 CLT agenda. Workshops and meetings are also planned, making this encounter a fruitful one for all attendees.
Expecting that this new version of the CLT, in which the Ministry of Communications of the Republic of Cuba (MINCOM) and the Telecommunications Company of Cuba (ETECSA) will act as hosts, will be as successful as the past events, we are hereby calling the actors of the industry to participate and share their positions and experiences to enrich the discussions and work on a joint agenda to improve and strengthen the Latin American digital ecosystem.
We look forward to seeing you in Varadero!
2018 CLT Organizing Committee.
I have the honor to welcome you on behalf of the Communications Ministry of the Republic of Cuba at this sixth edition of the Latin- American Telecommunications Congress.
This space is an invaluable opportunity to discuss together the challenges we are facing and to assess challenges posed by the advancement of the digital ecosystem at regional level and its contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals.
As Minister of the host country, I invite you to discuss on public policies that encourage the digital economy, the development of contents, services and innovative applications. Let us join efforts to work in order to ensure the universal access to telecommunications/ICT in an effective, affordable and secure way, in correspondence with the WSIS Action lines and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
I wish you a happy stay in Cuba and I thank you for your participation in this Congress.
