With the global focus on its telecom and digital industry, India is pushing for a greater say in the ongoing policymaking at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), including for a new global vision for 6G and international rules for satellite communications. 
Officials said G20 has been used as a platform to drive India’s vision, and ensure it does not miss out on talks shaping up the next set of global policies on technology.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the first Area Office & Innovation Centre of ITU in India on Wednesday. Sources said he may announce a 6G vision document at the event. A parallel Communication Ministers’ Conclave of the neighbouring and G20 nations would also take place.
