[802SEC] FW: [ITAC-T] WTSA participants

More on the upcoming WTSA. Some of the demographics are not surprising. In recent years ITU-T staff have worked to make certain Less Devloped or Developing countries from some parts of the world are attending. I will let you draw your own conclusions.

Subject: [ITAC-T] WTSA participants

Hi Paul,

Based on the official current
list for next week's
WTSA, the
attendance is shaping
up to be
unusually skewed with
who normally have
little to do
with ITU-T. The
participants by
regional breakdown
are as follows.

A great many countries are apparently
not sending anyone.

In the African region, 38 out of
54 are going

In the Australia-Oceania region, only
2 out of a total of 12 are going.

In Central America & the Caribbean,
only 4 out of out of a total 20 are going.

In Central Asia, 4 out of 6 are going.

In East & Southeast Asia, 10 out
of 17 are going.

In Europe, 20 out of 44 are going.
Most of the larger European countries
are sending only a handful of people
or no one.

In the Middle East, 13 out of 17
are going.

All in North America are going.

In South America only 4 out
of 12 are going.

In South Asia, 5 out of 8 are going.
No one from India.
