Connecting the Globe: Telecommunications Development 2000 summarizes the Commission's expanded outreach to regulators in Africa, Asia, Central/Eastern Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean during the period 1999-2000.
The report includes copies of bilateral work plans between the FCC and foreign regulators that guide cooperative activities. These work plans are an essential tool for maximizing internationally the impact of the Commission's limited resources. In developing work plans, Commission staff identifies foreign counterparts facing a particularly critical period in the development of modern, pro-competitive regulatory regimes. The Commission works with these agencies to design and implement a targeted program of enhanced cooperation to address key obstacles to successful reform.
Work plans with counterpart agencies in Argentina, Ghana, Hungary, India, Jamaica, Peru, the Philippines, South Africa, Thailand and Turkey are provided in this report, as is an overview of implementation activities conducted under these arrangements.
