NTT DoCoMo Inc. will launch a fourth U.S. Advisory Board, which will hold its first meeting in the United States on April 11, 2007. The third Advisory Board, established in December 2004, completed its mission in August 2006. The board will be chaired by former United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Michael K. Powell, currently chairman of the MK Powell Group and senior advisor of Providence Equity Capital, and will include Dr. C. Fred Bergsten, founder and director of the Peterson Institute for International Economics, who served as chairperson on two previous boards. The board will meet with DoCoMo representatives twice a year in the United States, and will have a term of two years. The U.S. Advisory Board provides DoCoMo with advice regarding global social and economic circumstances as they relate to its management policies, corporate governance, compliance, and corporate communications.
