ITU 2022/ITU Deputy Secretary-General-elect Tomas Lamanauskas says solutions can be found together

Published on

Tomas Lamanauskas was elected the next Deputy Secretary-General of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies on September 29, at the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference (PP-22) in Bucharest, according to Agerpres.

„The only way to find solutions is to come together to look for them, with open hearts and open minds” Lamanauskas said in his acceptance speech.

The Lithuanian Tomas Lamanauskas has pledged to foster broad partnerships for connectivity; to increase ITU and industry ambitions on net-zero emissions and climate sustainability; and to integrate results-based management into all ITU processes.

The Deputy Secretary-General, like ITU’s other four elected officials, will serve a four-year term starting 1 January 2023. In this key executive role, Mr Lamanauskas will assist ITU’s next Secretary-General, Doreen Bogdan-Martin (U.S.), who was elected separately earlier on September 29.

On September 30, Member States at the Plenipotentiary Conference elected the Directors of ITU’s Radiocommunication Bureau, Telecommunication Standardization Bureau, and Telecommunication Development Bureau: Mario Maniewicz (Uruguay) – re-elected for his second term as Director of ITU’s Radiocommunication Bureau; Seizo Onoe (Japan) – elected Director of ITU’s Telecommunication Standardization Bureau; Cosmas Zavazava (Zimbabwe) – elected Director of ITU’s Telecommunication Development Bureau.

Romania is the first country in the European Union (EU) to organize this large-scale event, most precisely the 21st edition of the Plenipotentiary Conference of the International Telecommunication Union (PP-22), carried out over September 26 – October 14, at the Palace of Parliament, with more than 3,000 leaders participating and delegations from 193 countries.
