Commerce Official Attends ITU Conference in Romania

Announces American contribution toward internet coalition.

Deputy Secretary of Commerce Don Graves served as the Senior U.S. Representative at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) 2022 Conference in Bucharest, Romania. Three thousand other delegates also attended, representing 180 countries participating in the conference. Deputy Secretary Graves gave an official U.S. policy statement, announcing that the United States will be increasing its contribution to the Partner2Connect Digital Coalition, an international program that provides internet access to those most in need.

“We are committed to working with the international community to achieve universal affordable connectivity; to close digital divides—including the gender digital divide—and to equip people with digital skills,” said Deputy Secretary Graves. “We must continue to work together to connect the unconnected.”
