7/17/2007

The National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (NTRA) attaches great importance to the formulation and attainment of unremitting and ever-developing scopes of cooperation with the national and international telecom regulators. These scopes represent a great and unique opportunity for exchanging expertise and knowledge, getting acquainted with other experiences and benefiting therefrom.

The NTRA has been abiding by cooperation policies ever since its establishment. Hence, many MoU and Cooperation Protocols were signed between the NTRA and different entities and the concerned international bodies.

The ambition of the NTRA’s policies and activities is greater than signing Memos of Understanding and the formulation of scopes of cooperation. It goes far beyond all this and aims to activate these MoU and seek new fields for bilateral cooperation.

The NTRA signed last March a MoU with the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India. It enabled the NTRA to have new ways for exchanging expertise and technologies, getting acquainted with methods of telecom administration and governance in both countries. Moreover, it emphasized the significance of enhancing the bilateral cooperation and exchanging expertise and experts.
 In this regard, the National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (NTRA) hosts a delegation from the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). The delegation comprises: Mr. Sodher Gobta and Mr. Shagy Abraham who are telecom experts in India.

The Workshop proceedings  will start on Sunday morning15/7/2007 and will last for two days. In this Workshop, the two regulators will review the main and distinctive milestones of telecom regulation in both countries in order to seek new fields of bilateral cooperation and benefiting from both experiences.
