Establishment Day of the APT 

25 February 2019, Bangkok, Thailand

The APT Secretariat celebrated the Establishment Day of the Asia-Pacific Telecommunity (APT) on 25 February 2019 at the APT Headquarters in Bangkok, Thailand. Representatives from the Administration of Thailand as the host country, Affiliate Members in Thailand and international organizations participated in the celebration.

 

The celebration started with a religious ceremony. Ms. Areewan Haorangsi, Secretary General of APT gave a speech about the Establishment Day and the 40th Anniversary Celebration.

 

The APT was founded in 1979 by the joint initiatives of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The Constitution of the APT came into force on 25 February 1979 and the APT was established since then.

 

This year is the first year that APT celebrates the Establishment Day on 25 February. It also marks the 40th Anniversary of the APT. There will be various activities throughout the year to celebrate this auspicious occasion. The highlight of the 40th Anniversary Celebration is the Asia-Pacific ICT Ministerial Meeting 2019 which will be held from 25-26 June 2019 in Singapore.

 

The celebration concluded with the cake cutting ceremony and luncheon.
