Statement of Intent on Telecommunications Policy Cooperation

August 30, 2000

The National Telecommunications & Information Administration and the International Trade Administration of the United States Department of Commerce and the Chilean SubSecretariat of Telecommunications are pleased to announce their intent to cooperate on bilateral telecommunications policy issues. Taking into consideration the rapidly evolving nature of telecommunications technologies and the fast-paced development of new telecommunications services, such bilateral cooperation should encourage and facilitate the exchange of information and ideas on how our respective governments can best take advantage of and promote these advances for the mutual benefit of our citizens.

The unique policy questions raised by the convergence of media, the development of broadband networks, and the ever-expanding capabilities and wide-spread adoption of the Internet challenge our countries to continually reevaluate our regulatory and policy perspectives to assure that they best promote a fair and flexible market-based approach to telecommunications development.

Thus, the National Telecommunications & Information Administration and the International Trade Administration of the United States Department of Commerce and the Chilean SubSecretariat of Telecommunications propose to cooperate on periodic visitor exchanges and ongoing information exchanges via information technologies to increase awareness of the latest telecom market, technological, and policy developments in the United States of America and in Chile and to broaden the benefits that come from the mutual exchange of ideas and information regarding these developments.
