'''ITU Telecom:''' This sector works towards bringing together the top names among the ICT industry.<ref name="link4">[http://www.tiaonline.org/gov_affairs/issues/intl_advocacy/itu.cfm tiaonline]</ref>
 
== Relation with ICANN ==
In 2005, the ITU signed a MoU with [[ICANN]], which superseded and suspended an earlier MoU which ICANN had with the U.S. Department of Commerce ([[DOC]]). The main motive behind signing the MoU with ITU was that ICANN wanted to adopt some of ITU's proven practices, such as charging for access to documents and membership in order to make up for publication costs, which would ultimately help to ease budget pressures.<ref>[http://www.icannwatch.org/article.pl?sid=05/04/01/1423239 icannwatch.org]</ref>
==World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT)==
===ITU & WCITLeaks===
The ITU does not openly publish submissions from their meetings and leave it up to individual states to decide what material they wish to release.<ref name="bbcnews-2"></ref> In response, [[WCITLeaks]], a website similar to WikiLeaks but related exclusively to the ITU and [[WCIT]], aims to bring transparency to the UN organization by encouraging those in possession of documents to publish them anonymously.<ref>[http://wcitleaks.org/ WCITLeaks.org]</ref>
