The Internet Society has signed a
Memorandum of Understanding with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce
and Industry
(FICCI) to cooperate on a range of internet focused projects,
reflecting the shared interests of the two organizations.

The first collaborative project of the
Internet Society and FICCI will be an event, the India Internet Governance
Conference (IIGC) on 4-5 October 2012 in Delhi, India. The agenda will cover a
wide range of Internet issues, including the multi-stakeholder model for
Internet governance, International Telecommunication Regulations and Internet
governance, national priorities for broadband access, cyber security and
privacy, Internet Protocol v6 (IPv6), and the Internet’s role in social and
economic development.

Rajnesh Singh, Internet Society Regional
Bureau Director for Asia-Pacific, said, “The Internet Society is a strong
advocate of a free and open Internet. We look forward to collaborating with
FICCI to develop and offer programs that reflect our mutual interests,
especially in the critical areas of Internet policy and standards. The
Asia-Pacific regional bureau works closely with our Chapters, members, partners
and stakeholders, and a wide range of regional organisations to drive
initiatives focused on the continuation of an open Internet that promotes
innovation, business opportunity, and development in the region.”

Rajiv Kumar, Secretary General, FICCI, said,
“As the apex chamber of commerce in India, FICCI appreciates the importance of
a healthy Internet ecosystem and its growing role in world prosperity. FICCI
jointly with the Internet Society looks forward to taking a leading role in
making the Internet a better place for all. With this landmark collaboration,
we hope to work towards finding answers to a wide range of policy issues
relating to Internet governance. We expect that the outcomes from the
governance conference will help inform policy dialogue within India as well as
shape the global agenda on Internet governance discourse.”

The Internet Society promotes open dialogue on
Internet policy, technology, and future development among users, companies,
governments, and other organizations. Working with its members and Chapters
around the world, the Internet Society works for the evolution and growth of
the Internet for everyone.
