Nominee statement

I believe my inclusion into the NRO Number Council will provide a voice for the Pacific region, especially the Island States. With the rapid growth in technologies, fast internet access, increase in accessibility, Artificial Intelligence capability, and now "Interoperability" in services, the need to openly collaborate and contribute to a stable and secure Internet is paramount.

The Asia and Pacific region caries a lot of IPs and faces alot of challenges and cyber-threats which is always a concerning matter required to be addressed at a higher level. I believe, my inclusion into the NRO Number council will be very crucial with the experience and existing stakeholders that I can represent in the region.

Finally, my time and commitment to the NRO Number Council represent not only myself, or my Country but the entire region especially the Pacific island States/nations. I hope to collaborate more on ensuring an open, secure Internet, as I value what NRO Number Council and what it stands for.
