The Plenipotentiary is a quadrennial conference where Member States negotiate the mission, scope, structure and procedures in its Constitution and Convention (CS/CV). While no changes are expected to CS/CV itself at PP-18, the next four years of the ITU’s work will be shaped by new and updated Resolutions, Decisions and Recommendations. The issues on the docket include Internet governance, cybersecurity, access, infrastructure, IoT, AI and OTT Services. Additionally, there will be discussion on the path forward on the International Telecommunication Regulations (ITRs), which were most recently negotiated at WCIT-12, but were only signed by 89 of the 151 member states.
