The Science Ministry said Friday that it is well gearing up to hold the meeting of a United Nations agency specialized in information and communication technologies slated for October in the country.

With the event 100 days away, the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning said the meeting will be an opportunity for South Korea to become a “fast mover” in the information and communications sector, developing from the current “fast follower” status.

South Korea will host the 19th International Telecommunications Union Plenipotentiary Conference in Busan from Oct. 20 through Nov. 7.

“While people say South Korea is an IT-advanced nation, we only managed to draw up our own opinion on agendas brought by other countries in global events,” said Min Won-ki, who heads the event’s organizing committee.

The ITU is an information and communications arm of the U.N. that manages various tasks, including setting technological standards, allocating radio frequency and satellite orbits, and improving qualities of communication services. (Yonhap)
