The Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC) annual conference was held in Honolulu recently, from 18 to 21 January. As usual, the Pacific Islands Telecommunications Association (PITA) also held a Member Meeting alongside PTC 2015, on 17 January.
PTC is a non-governmental membership organization supporting the telecommunications industry of the Asia-Pacific region, and its annual conference includes a conference programme and trade show.
