Preparations are under way ahead of the World Radio Conference in Egypt later this year. This has been revealed by the Director-General of Telecommunications and Postal Services Robert Nkuna.

He was briefing Parliament’s Communications Committee on his department’s performance and expenditure for the first quarter. South Africa is one of the participants in the conference.

The purposes of the conference include revising radio regulations after every three to four years. Nkuna explains:

“Preparations for the Radio World Conference also are on-going.  And last week we successfully hosted about 37 countries that came to our shore in East London to plan. This is where African countries came to South Africa to plan for the World Radio Conference that will take place from the end of October to the end of November.”
