This program (Promoting American Approaches to ICT Regulatory Policy, or ProICT) will create the ability to fund intensive, dedicated policy engagements with receptive USAID host countries that will help those countries adopt American models of telecommunications, internet, and ICT regulation. U.S. ICT policy goals include promoting:
● Open, interoperable, reliable, and secure internet and communications networks,
● Multi-stakeholder models of internet governance,
● Pro-competitive and pro-investment spectrum, telecommunications infrastructure, and regulatory policies, and
● Effective approaches to advancing cybersecurity frameworks, supply chain policies (such as for 5G), and regulation of communications networks.
