ICT and Telecom policy

In the 21st Century, the reach of internet and mobile networks, the security and adoption of communications services, and vibrancy of ICT sector are crucial for countries to grow and become strong U.S. partners. For these reasons, the U.S. government is working to significantly increase international cooperation to secure an open, interoperable, reliable, and secure cyberspace.
