CTO Events

Commonwealth coordination meetings

Coordination of Commonwealth views during international treaty negotiations is critical to ensuring the CTO and the wider Commonwealth network of sister agencies fully play their part in achieving the new Sustainable Development Goals. Commonwealth coordination meetings occur in the margins of ITU, ICANN and Internet Governance Forums and provide a platform for member countries to discuss the pressing issues of the day in an environment that promotes knowledge sharing, inclusivity and partnerships.
