The Egyptian team participated in this meeting to collaborate, contribute and work to designing the international regulatory frame of mobile schemes, with a purpose to develop the service quality criteria, reinforce the usage of frequential spectrum resources and serve the domestic market growth. Furthermore, this participation comes in line with the progress achieved by the state’s government in the implementation of digital transformation projects, to support the pre-planned growth strategies in such a field.    The meeting undertook topics of preparing Radiocommunication Sector regulatory documents and IMT frequential spectrum benchmarks. It also discussed the preparation and upgrading of 5D scheme-benchmarks, as well as the preparation of the upcoming World Radiocommunication Conference WRC-23, which is expected to provide an extra frequential spectrum for mobile phone schemes within many new frequential ranges.
