Saudi Arabia chairs a number of leadership positions during the World Radiocommunication Conference "WRC23" held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), which was a result of consensus by the member states of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The Saudi representatives will assume executive roles in the conference by leading the decision-making process and developing reports related to international spectrum allocation, technical and regulatory measures to ensure better use of frequencies used by space, aeronautical, maritime and other services to avoid any radio interference.

During the opening of the conference, the Chairman of the conference and the Vice Chair were elected, as Saudi Arabia won the position of Vice Chair of the Conference to be led by Eng. Mohammed Al-Abdulqader. In addition, Eng. Abdulrahman AlNajdi was elected as the Chair of Space Services Committee, while Eng. Saad Bin Askar was elected as the Chair of the Aeronautical Applications Committee.

Saudi Arabia also won the position of the Chair of Radiocommunication Advisory Group (RAG), which will be led by Eng. Mohammad AlJanoobi. The RAG reviews the strategies and priorities of the radio sector in the International Radiocommunication Union (ITU-R), and provides instructions and guidance to the study committees in the ITU.

The Communications, Space and Technology Commission (CST) stated that these positions are a testimony to the national Saudi capabilities and reflect the trust of the international community in Saudi Arabia and its contributions in achieving the goals of international spectrum management and its technical & regulatory processes. CST highlights the efforts of the Saudi representatives in the committees and study groups they have been assigned to, which reflect their experiences and capabilities that are reliable in shaping the future of communications, space and technology globally.

Saudi Arabia has been a member of the ITU Council for 58 years along with being a strong contributor to their initiatives and objectives, as it seeks to enhance regional and international cooperation and solidarity in the field of radiocommunications through its leading positions in the ITU such as chairing the Radio Regulations Board (RRB).
