The regional forum on telecommunications and the Internet continues to hold sessions in Cuba


Havana, Nov 30 - The América Accesible 2021 forum continues its work in Cuba today, with the purpose of promoting digital inclusion and showing the advances in the use of information and communication technologies (ICT).

The event is the ideal setting in which the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) presents experiences in the sector at a global level, between administrations and operating companies.

During the opening day, the Cuban head of the Ministry of Communications, Mayra Arevich, reported that in recent years this Antillean nation experienced sustained growth in Internet connectivity and the use of ICT.

Averich assured that 64 percent of Cubans have access to the so-called network of networks, some 6.6 million users.

For her part, Roxana Widmer, ITU digital inclusion coordinator, spoke about the inequalities that affect people with less purchasing power or with motor, intellectual or audiovisual disabilities,

He said that at the end of 2020 four billion 660 million people were connected, but still 40 percent of humanity did not have access to the digital world. (PL)
