APNIC supports multistakeholder discussion at NetHui 2013
APNIC is participating in NetHui 2013, which is New Zealand's multistakeholder conference on Internet governance and policy issues.
APNIC is participating in NetHui 2013, which is New Zealand's multistakeholder conference on Internet governance and policy issues. The theme for this year's NetHui is "The Power of the Open Internet". NetHui 2013 is being held from 8 to 10 July in Wellington, New Zealand.
APNIC actively supports all Internet Governance Forum (IGF) initiatives such as NetHui 2013, and encourages participation at a national, regional, and global level. APNIC believes the IGF and the supporting regional and local events are the best options available for open, non-decisional multistakeholder discussions. APNIC contributes to these discussions and uses these forums as an opportunity to support those initiatives that are aligned with APNIC's mission to support a stable, open Internet for everyone.
APNIC will participate in the upcoming Asia Pacific Regional IGF in Seoul, South Korea and the 8th global IGF in Bali, Indonesia.
APNIC staff will take part in the following sessions during the event.
