The World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA) is a consortium of over 80 information technology (ICT) industry associations from economies around the world, representing more than 90% of the international ICT market. As the global voice of the ICT industry, WITSA is dedicated to:

• Advocating policies that advance the industry’s growth and development.
• Facilitating international trade and investment in ICT products and services.
• Strengthening WITSA’s national industry associations through the sharing of knowledge, experience, and critical information.
• Providing members with a vast network of contacts in nearly every geographic region of the world.
• Hosting the Global Public Policy Summit (GPPS) every two years.
• Hosting the World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT), the premier industrysponsored global ICT event, every two years.

Founded in 1978 and originally known as the World Computing Services Industry Association, WITSA has become an increasingly active advocate in international public policy issues affecting the creation of a robust global information infrastructure, including:

• Increasing competition through open markets and regulatory reform.
• Protecting intellectual property.
• Encouraging cross-industry and government cooperation to enhance information security.
• Bridging the education and skills gap.
• Reducing tariff and non-tariff trade barriers to ICT goods and services.
• Safeguarding the viability and continued growth of the Internet and electronic commerce.

WITSA has a real impact on the global ICT environment. It strengthens the industry at large by promoting a level playing field and by voicing the concerns of the international ICT community with multilateral organizations, including the World Trade Organization (WTO), the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the G8 and other international arenas where policies affecting industry interests are developed.
