Nominee statement

I feel honoured to be nominated for APNIC EC election. I’ve been working with APNIC community since the beginning thus I’ve been experiencing in different roles through community engagement. I am one of APNIC ECs. I was Policy SIG chair and NRO NC member. I am one of the authors of IETF RFC3743. RFC3743 is recognized as a critical element in the global IDN framework.

I am committed to work with the community to advance adoption and deployment of IPv6 and RPKI. The IPv6 adoption ratio in Taiwan had been increased from 0.5% in 2018 to 49% in 2022. The RPKI RoA ratio (IPv4 valid space) in Taiwan had been increased from 0% in 2018 to 99.5% in 2022. Things happened because many contributors devoted significant effort and time on this matter. As I accept the responsibility, I also commit myself to serve the community and make APNIC as an exemplary number registry to carry out APNIC’s mission.
