Plenary 5 – National & Regional IGF Activities Updates

Date: 20 July 2012 (Friday)

Time: 16:30 – 17:15

Venue: Room 17610

As part of “taking stock” of where Internet Governance issues are at in the Asia Pacific region, this session allows for very brief updates from local in-country and sub-regional IGF events, highlighting what are the 3 or 4 major issues confronting the country, territory or sub-region. From these summaries, and gathering the main issues arising from the APrIGF, this should provide us with workshop and session ideas for future global IGFs.
