APrIGF Macao 2015
Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum (APrIGF) is one of the key regional initiatives on Internet governance which provides an open platform for multi-stakeholders to discuss and identify issues and priorities, and ultimately advances the development of Internet governance in the Asia Pacific region as well as bring forward and contribute to the wider global Internet community.
Our community has grown significantly since initiated in 2010 and we are now bringing together over 300 multi-stakeholders across the region every year to advance the Internet governance development. In addition, our effort in engaging the next generation on the Internet governance discussions is also well recognised with the Youth IGF being held in parallel.
APrIGF 2015 will be held from 30 June to 3 July at the Macau University of Science & Technology, Macao, hosted by HNET.Asia – the registry for the “.mo” ccTLD of Macau – and by the Macau High Technology Industry Chamber. It will be held in conjunction with an annual local telecommunications event, CommunicMacau Expo, from 3 to 5 July 2015.
With the many recent developments of the Internet such as the IANA stewardship transition and the discussion of post-2015 development agenda, etc, APrIGF 2015 will definitely be the good platform for all these important discussions.
