We are most pleased to share great news about Engr. Mostofa Al Mahmud, Deputy GM of BTCL, the .BD registry, having successfully earned a certificate in postgraduate studies from the University of Edinburgh. That became possible under an APTLD new capacity building program under which every Member’s staff can enroll in a program of one’s choice and complete online classes from the best universities on the planet.      Photo

It was an honor for APTLD to participate (even remotely) in an APIGA 2022 session together with Kenny Huang (the only male on the on-site panel). While only a remote participation, it was great to reconnect with the young audience from across Asia Pacific!       Photo

We are proud to be listed as a co-sponsor of the upcoming APrIGF as highlighted at: https://conference.apnic.net/54/sponsor/sponsors/
