The Department of State's Advisory Committee on International Communications and Information Policy (ACICIP) will hold a public meeting on Friday, December 16, 2016 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Room 1107 of the Harry S Truman (HST) Building of the U.S. Department of State. The Truman Building is located at 2201 C Street NW., Washington, DC 20520.

The committee provides a formal channel for regular consultation and coordination on major economic, social and legal issues and problems in international communications and information policy, especially as these issues and problems involve users of information and communications services, providers of such services, technology research and development, foreign industrial and regulatory policy, the activities of international organizations with regard to communications and information, and developing country issues.

The meeting will be led by Ambassador Daniel A. Sepulveda, U.S. Coordinator for International Communications and Information Policy. The meeting's agenda will include discussions pertaining to various upcoming international telecommunications meetings and conferences, as well as efforts focused on technology and international development, including updates from the ACICIP ICT for International Development and International Disaster Response Sub-Committees.
