2 The World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC) held every three or four years. The task of the WRC is to analyze and, if necessary, revise the Radio Regulations (RR), the international treaty governing the use of radio spectrum, as well as geostationary and non- geostationary satellite orbits. The Radiocommunication Assembly (RA) is the supreme organ of the ITU Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) in the part of the study group (SG), the Radiocommunication Advisory Group (RAG) and the Conference Preparatory Meeting Radio (CPM). The next World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-12) will be held in Geneva, Switzerland, from January 23 to February 17, 2012. The Radiocommunication Assembly (RA) precedes it and will be held from 16 - 20 January 2012. The agenda of the forthcoming WRC-12 includes 30 questions (Agenda Items). Introduction

3 3 The Arab Spectrum Management Group (ASMG) was established by the Arab Ministerial Council for ICT to cooperate and collaborate in the field of Spectrum Management. The ASMG member countries are twenty two Arab countries. The ASMG Organization Structure is as follows:- Mr. Tariq Awadhi the Chairman – UAE Mr. Mustafa Bessi Vice Chairman - Morocco Mr. Salah ELWardani Vice Chairman - Egypt Mr. Abdullah Al Muhemeed Vice Chairman –Saudi Arabia Dr. Imad Youssef Hoballah Vice Chairman - Lebanon Mr. Abdul qader Ebrir Vice Chairman – Algeria ASMG Overview

4 Cooperate in the field of Spectrum Management by sharing and exchanging views on the emerging radio communication aspects.
