ITU’s Council Working Group on international Internet-related public policy issues (CWG-Internet) has launched an open consultation- both online and physical- on the following topic:
Developmental Aspects of the Internet
“Considering the importance of Internet to the global digital economy, all stakeholders are invited to submit their comments on the following key aspects:
1. What are the developmental aspects of the Internet (for example, economic, social, regulatory and technical aspects), especially for developing countries?
2. How can governments and other stakeholders promote the developmental aspects of the Internet?
3. What are the challenges and opportunities?”
You are invited to submit your views to the online open consultation by 4 January 2017 [UPDATE: This deadline has been extended to 11 January 2017], through the following link: http://www.itu.int/en/council/cwg-internet/Pages/consultation-oct2016.aspx , where you can also find important information and instructions on the submission process.
This online open consultation will be followed by a physical open consultation meeting to be held on 3 February 2017 at the ITU Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. During this physical meeting, respondents to the online consultation will have the opportunity to present their submitted views and to have a fruitful discussion with the other participants, including members of the CWG-Internet.
