​​​​​​​​​​7th Meeting: 16-17 March 2013, Mexico City​​​

Broadband Commission Co-Chair Mr Carlos Slim Helú hosts the seventh full meeting of the group in his home town of Mexico City, from 16-17 March 2013. 

16 March will feature the first full meeting of the Working Group on Broadband and Gender,​ followed by a grand exhibition of ICT development projects at Aldea Digital Village at Plaza del Zócalo in Mexico City in the afternoon. 

The Commission meeting on 17 March will feature lively debate on issues related to the previous day’s site visit and other initiatives. The UN Post-2015 development agenda, the Broadband Commission targets, content stimulation and global ICT indicators will be in focus throughout the day.  ​

​​​Broadband Commission meetings are closed to the public, but give Commissioners the opportunity to meet face-to-face to discuss game changing ideas for the industry. Commissioners represent the private sector, governments, NGOs and the UN family; across multiple sectors to name a few: healthcare, education, environmental management, finance and advertising. This diversity reflects the truly transformational nature of Broadband.
