Nominee statement

In my current role has given me a much better understanding of how the “Internet world works”, not to mention that it has helped me to develop a huge interest in learning more about internet governance and how important it is to make the internet community fair for everyone.

I am extremely honored to be nominated for the APNIC EC election. It is crucial that we restore a community led bottom-up governance of the internet in the Asia Pacific region. And, I know that the best way to achieve this is to take back control of APNIC, and ensure all voices are heard clearly.

Fairness for all APNIC members is my motto!

As a candidate for the APNIC Executive Council, I pledge to:

  • Reduce membership fees by 30 percent;
  • Champion a positive relationship with all governments;
  • Be a strong voice for businesses regardless of their size;
  • Make APNIC carbon neutral;
  • Ensure the executive team of APNIC is held accountable to members;
  • Host monthly open sessions with all members; and
  • Move APNIC to a location where it will be able to provide more legal protection and safety to all APNIC members.

The upcoming elections are very important to the future of the internet in the APAC community, and the rest of the world. I believe in a free, fair, and transparent election so all members can have a say in who is representing them.
