These include: the opening up of public telecommunications markets, standardization of information technology and telecommunications, mutually recognized type approval of telecommunications terminals, a coordination of infrastructure planning of telecommunications administrations, programmes of research and development, regional promotion, and harmonization of the regulatory framework. The goal is complete unification of the markets by 1992.
