Home / About Us / Cooperation


Open to global developments in the communications sector, regulatory controls, and regulatory practices, the National Agency for Telecommunications Regulation (ANRT) has incorporated the international cooperation perspective since its creation. Within the framework of bilateral or multilateral cooperation, ANRT works together with foreign partners to improve the performance of the telecom sector.

Through the signing of cooperation protocols between ANRT and its foreign counterparts, the two parties are committed to defining and implementing a common interest plan, particularly through:

  • Cooperation agreements;
  • The creation of joint committees and the facilitation of work sessions;
  • Temporary missions (visits, training, assistance and/or exchange of expertise).

Consequently, ANRT has signed bilateral cooperation agreements with several countries in Africa, Europe, and Asia (Algeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Comoros (Union of the), Congo (DRC), France, Guinea, Italy, Jordan, Niger, Portugal, Senegal, Tunisia, Turkey).
