More than 400 participants attended the oath ceremony, including members of more than 30 countries ahead of the Organisation’s Council meeting to take place on 16-17 September 2015.

The secretary-general elect also added that he was determined to make a difference for all member countries, offering high-quality broadband access, adoption of adequate policies on cybersecurity to protect businesses, financial systems, networks and vulnerable groups, among other things.

“I feel a high sense of responsibility to take this organisation to greater heights. It is indeed a big challenge and I am all set to build on the foundations of my predecessors,” said Taylor.
