Elalamy to address ICANN55 in Marrekech

The Moroccan Minister of Industry, Trade and Digital Economy, Moulay Hafid Elalamy, would be speaking at the welcome ceremony of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Number (ICANN)’s 55th Public Meeting in Marrakech city, reports ITRealms.
ICANN public meeting is a five-day public meeting holding between March 5 and 10, 2016, this year being hosted by the National Telecommunications Regulatory Agency (ANRT) of Morocco. 

ITRealms gathered that the meeting is being held at a critical moment in the organization’s history, as the IANA Stewardship Transition nears completion. As such, stakeholders from around the world will be convening in Marrakech to finalize the proposal that will ultimately transfer stewardship of the IANA functions – key elements of the Internet’s Domain Name System (DNS) – from the United States government over to the global multistakeholder community.

The ICANN’s incoming President and CEO, Mr. Göran Marby, will also be speaking to attendees during the welcome ceremony.  Just as the outgoing CEO, Mr. Fadi Chehadé and Board Chair Dr. Stephen Crocker will be addressing attendees during the ceremony.

ITRealms recalls that ICANN’s public meetings held trice annually, convenes members of the global, multistakeholder Internet community, made up of individual users, businesses, civil society, governments, research institutions and non-government organizations, to discuss issues impacting the Domain Name System (DNS) and develop policy.
