CLDP Conducts Pre-Assessment Meetings on Telecommunications in Western Hemisphere


From October 21st – December 2nd, 2021, CLDP led a series of 11 virtual “Pre-Assessment Meetings,” with the inter-agency working in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Panama, Uruguay, Peru, and Ecuador. The series brought together U.S. government stakeholders working on ICT and telecommunications issues in each country, including representatives from Post, USAID, the National Telecommunications Information Administration, the International Trade Administration, and the Federal Communications Commission. As a result of this series, relevant agencies worked together to identify priority areas, coordinate and deconflict, creating a more harmonized strategy for U.S. ICT programming in the Western Hemisphere region, moving forward. CLDP supported this forum under the Digital Connectivity and Cybersecurity Partnership, a global initiative to advance connectivity and digital trade, improve policy and regulatory environments for ICT sector growth, and enhance cyber security.
