ICANN is holding the second of two regional outreach meetings planned for FY07-08. The first meeting of these meetings was held in Taipei 19-21 October 2007.
This second regional meeting will be held in Dubai from 1 to 3 April 2008 in Dubai. The meeting is for policy makers, managers of country code top-level domains (ccTLDs) and Internet businesses in this region. The agenda for the meeting is designed to address three main themes: a broad introduction to the ICANN multi-stakeholder model; challenges and opportunities in the registry and registrar businesses; and an introduction and discussion of internationalized domain names. ICANN staff is coordinating with regional organizations (including APTLD) regarding participation.
This outreach activity is part of the ICANN Strategic Plan.
