The International Telecommunication Union has been taking an active interest during the past years in assisting the countries of Africa in improving their telecommunicating systems. This has become more so in the case of the newly independent African countries, as telecommunications have assumed a special importance in their economic development. In most of the countries the need has been felt for a large number of engineers to be trained for meeting expansions and to take up positions of higher technical responsibilities.
