APAC Hub expansion key to ICANN commitment to globalization

The Chief Operating Officer, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), Susanna Wong Bennett, has said that expanding Asia Pacific (APAC) Hub is key to Ithe organisation's  strategic focus and commitment to globalization, ITRealms reports

She stressed that this development would position ICANN for long-term stability as it continues the work of maintaining a secure, stable and interoperable Internet and cements the vision of having three global hubs to serve the global community.

ITRealms gathered that ICANN announced recently that it has moved its APAC hub to a new office, located in the South Beach Tower in the Esplanade area. The move is in line with ICANN's expanded presence in the APAC region.

The Vice President and Managing Director, ICANN, Asia Pacific, Kuek Yu-Chuang, said, "We knew from the start that the APAC Hub had to play catch-up with the fast-evolving Internet user demographic in the region. To address the needs of the region, we quintupled our staff headcount over the past two years so that we are now able to provide a wide range of services."

 The ICANN APAC Hub was established in Singapore in August 2013 to better serve the stakeholders in this region and recently celebrated its second anniversary, ITRealms learnt

ICANN currently has a 30-strong staff team in the region, providing services such as registry and registrar support, stakeholder engagement, contractual compliance, security capacity building, communications and customer service, as well as support functions such as operations, IT, legal, finance and human resources.
