With the involvement in the Internet communities, I could understand the wants from the communities and I will continue to listen and help gather the inputs to APNIC to enhance the services to fit for the members' benefit.

Being one of the program committee of HKNOG, working group of Peering Asia and organizing comittee of SGNOG, I have been actively promoting the collaboration and knowledge sharing to the local Internet communities. I believe my strong technical networking background would contribute to a better policy for the Internet communities in Asia Pacific.
