Head of Cybernet Appointed to the Board of APNIC Foundation
Incorporated in Hong Kong in September 2016, the foundation was first discussed by APNIC Executive Council in 2014, when I started to support and expand a mechanism exploring the APNIC Development Program. The EC wanted to do this by raising funds, regardless of the contributions of APNIC members, to support local development efforts in the future.
The projects and activities funded by the Foundation are designed and managed by APNIC, in conjunction with financial partners interested in developing the Internet. These activities are conducted by APNIC and our partners, which include a growing group of community coaches and technical advisors, and other related organizations.
The Foundation was led by an independent board of directors, elected by APNIC EG, which includes recognized experts and respected in the Internet community in Asia Pacific. The Foundation staff is located in the APNIC office in Brisbane, Australia.
The Foundation appreciates the support and collaboration with other foundations, agencies and organizations developing the Internet in Asia Pacific.
