His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, on Monday expressed his pride in the UAE's hosting of the World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC)-2023 in the Emirate of Dubai.
Sheikh Mohammed said through X platform, “The UAE, represented by its government, is hosting today the world's most important radiocommunications conference, attended by more than 4,500 government officials from 193 countries and 900 international organizations, universities and companies from around the world.”
He continued, “In the World Radiocommunication Conference, the countries of the world systematize wireless communications, their frequencies and their role in new sectors such as health, education, manufacturing, smart cities and others.”
Sheikh Mohammed also added, “We are proud that the UAE government is hosting such a mega global event. We welcome all representatives of countries, companies and universities and say welcome to the UAE, the country of the future."
The World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC) is a decision-making forum for governments and other bodies to review and, where necessary, revise international regulations and treaties, and debate key issues that have a global impact on radio, radiocommunications, satellites and other connected fields.
Held every three to four years, the WRC was last held in Egypt in 2019. The 2023 event, which will be held in Dubai, will be the conference’s seventh staging this century.
The conference, which has a highly practical and detailed agenda, enables member states to vote on matters that have major implications across multiple sectors and fields, including international airspace and waters.
The event features a Radiocommunications Assembly, followed by the World Radiocommunications Conference. There will then be a two-day planning session for the next WRC, scheduled for 2027.
