Bush Administration Gathers Experts to Tackle Complex Issues
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Department of Commerce has invited Progress & Freedom Foundation President Jeffrey A. Eisenach to participate in the upcoming “Spectrum Summit” to be held in Washington on April 4-5, 2002. According to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, the event “is a key step in the Administration’s far-reaching effort to deal with the many complex issues inherent in spectrum management policy.”
Eisenach will appear on a panel of economists and analysts moderated by Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information Nancy J. Victory and Federal Communications Commissioner Kevin J. Martin, Jr. The panel meets Thursday, April 4, at 1:15 p.m. EST, in the Department of Commerce Auditorium.
“NTIA expects the Summit to produce new ideas to develop and implement spectrum policy and management approaches that will make the use of spectrum more efficient; provide spectrum for new technologies; and improve the effectiveness of spectrum management process in the United States and Internationally,” Victory said.
The Foundation has done extensive research on spectrum policy and management. It released a Progress on Point paper based on a major symposium held last year, “ABC’s of Getting to 3G Wireless – Another Broadband Alternative Waiting to Be Born.”
The Progress & Freedom Foundation is a market-oriented think tank that studies the digital revolution and its implications for public policy. It is a 501(c)(3) research & educational organization.
