The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) participated in the International Telecommunication Union's (ITU) Radiocommunication Assembly (RA-23) with the aim of reinforcing international cooperation in radiocommunications and digital technology development, and promoting industry standards and solutions. The event was held in the United Arab Emirates.

In addition to suggesting relevant agenda items for the upcoming World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-23), the assembly endorsed recommendations for the sector and approved the chairs of several committees. A list of candidates for deputy chair positions in study groups was finalized, with the TRA’s Engineer Mohammad Abu Saif nominated as Deputy Chairman for the first study group, and Engineer Ahmed Hamada for the fifth study group. The nominations will undergo examination in the committees’ upcoming first sessions.

The assembly concluded with the adoption of several decisions aimed at elevating the ITU's processes, including regulation of the sustainable use of the radio frequency spectrum and associated satellite orbits utilized by space services, as well as a commitment to the empowerment of women by promoting gender equal participation and contributions within the ITU radiocommunications sector.

The Kingdom of Bahrain’s delegation plays a pivotal role in representing the Arab region in the fourth and fifth committees while also overseeing the election process within ITU's Radiocommunications Assembly. The TRA's international engagements are crucial to driving telecommunications sector growth and fostering service quality enhancement and overall progress in this important domain.
