The Summit which is organized by the International Telecommunication Union and is hosted by the Government of the Republic of Panama was preceded by two preparatory meetings that were held in Trinidad and Tobago, in March 2012, and in Mexico City, Mexico, in April 2012. This report focuses on the five Regional Initiatives for the Americas region which are Emergency Telecommunications, Digital Broadcasting, Broadband, Reduction of Internet Access Costs and Human Capacity Building on ICTs.
