Houlin Zhao will visit Serbia this year for the first time since he was appointed Secretary-General of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nations top body specialised in information and communication technologies.

Today he accepted the official invitation of Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić, which was presented to him by Director of the Office for IT and e-Government Mihailo Jovanović at a meeting held at the Forum of the World Summit on the Information Society in Geneva.

“I had the honour to hand the Secretary-General a letter in which the Prime Minister thanked the International Telecommunication Union for this prestigious nomination and invited Mr Zhao to visit Serbia,” Jovanović pointed out.

He added that Serbia has made enormous progress in achieving the United Nations global sustainable development goals, which the Secretary-General of the ITU Mr Zhao could see for himself at the presentation of the results of the Office for IT and eGovernment.

The Office for IT and eGovernment has recently been ranked among the 90 best in the fierce competition of 685 registered and 492 nominated projects by government institutions, companies and civil society organisations from around the world.

It is nominated in the category-creating a good environment for the development of the information society, out of a million votes received online.

Representatives of the Office for IT and eGovernment will attend the award ceremony at the WSIS Forum, which will be held in Geneva on 20 March at 12 pm local time. The professional jury will then announce the winners who have improved their environment in an innovative way by using new technologies, and made significant progress towards achieving the global goals of the United Nations in the sphere of the information society.
