The UAE Chairs the 31st Meeting of The Arab Spectrum Management Group (ASMG)


As part of WRC-23 preparations

The United Arab Emirates, represented by the Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA), chaired the 31st meeting of the Arab Spectrum Management Group (ASMG), which was held in Bahrain between 9-13 September 2023, as part of the final preparations for the World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-23), which will be held in the UAE from 20 November to 15 December 2023. 


TDRA had participated in a series of preparatory meetings at the level of global regional groups, including the Asia-Pacific Group in Brisbane - Australia, the American Group in Ottawa - Canada, the African Group in Yaoundé - Cameroon, and the meeting of the Commonwealth countries in Moscow - Russia.


During these meetings, H.E. Eng. Mohammed Al Ramsi expressed his aspiration to foster unity and collaboration among all, with the aim of addressing many of the critical issues that will shape the future of radiocommunication globally, including emerging technologies, frequency allocation, spectrum management, and satellite communications coordination, as collaborative efforts play a vital role in paving the path toward the efficient and harmonized utilization of these valuable resources and technologies.


In the coming period, TDRA will participate in the preparatory meeting of the European group, which will be held in Dublin, Ireland, in addition to the 3rd ITU Inter-regional Workshop on WRC-23 Preparation.


WRC, which is held every four years, is the supreme authority for updating the Radio Regulations, and is the only international treaty governing the use of the radio-frequency spectrum and the geostationary and non-geostationary-satellite orbits. The upcoming conference, which will be held at the Dubai World Trade Center in Dubai, UAE, will host 4,000 delegates representing government authorities and telecommunications regulatory bodies from 193 countries, as well as representatives of the radiocommunication sector and its main suppliers, to conduct critical technical regulatory discussions at the global level.
