ICANN 52: Singapore agog for global Internet stakeholders convention

The city of Singapore is now wearing a new look as participants for the global internet stakeholders meet converge for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) 52 public meeting reports ITRealms.

The four-day meeting, ITRealms reports, would hold between February 9 and 12, 2015 at the Raffles City Convention Centre, near Raffles Hotel, and the adjoining Fairmont Singapore and SwissĂ´tel.

The meeting, ITRealms gathered, will also bring together stakeholders from around the globe to discuss what the future of the Internet may look like in light of last year’s announcement that the United States (U.S.) government will transition stewardship of the IANA functions to the global multistakeholder community.

ITRealms also gathered that former Senior Advisor to U.S. President Bill Clinton, Ira Magaziner, and Singapore’s Minister of Communications and Information, Dr. Yaacob bin Ibrahim, will address attendees at the meeting’s opening ceremony in the morning of February 9, 2015. 

In the afternoon, ITRealms further learnt that ICANN President and CEO Fadi Chehadé will join Board Chair Dr. Stephen D. Crocker, Global Domains Division President Akram Atallah and Vice President and Managing Director of Asia Pacific (APAC) Yu-Chuang Kuek at a world press conference in Singapore.

ITRealms equally gathered that top on the agenda at the press meet will be to address a wide range of issues, including the current status of the IANA stewardship transition and the continued delegation of new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs).
