For the past 135 years, has been playing central role in coordinating the development of global networks and services. Today, this role is even more important as the wave of transformation into the digital economy sweeps through least developed, developing, transition economies and industrialised countries. The ITU is creating a level-playing field through global standards, technical assistance and a forum for the harmonised development, access and use of e-business technologies.
