participation in the APTLD 72 meeting in Tbilisi, Georgia 12-16th Sep. 2017 was my first meeting since I assumed my duties as the Director
General for the National Information Technology Center in Jordan. I was thankfully awarded a fellowship by the
APTLD board members to attend the meeting which was a great opportunity for me
to discuss important policy issues affecting Internet domain name related not
only to Jordan but to other Asian entities.
face to face with many of the ccTLD representatives in Asia and many
registration companies who shared their experiences in managing different domains
was an excellent demonstration of the cooperation and partnership with the
private and public sector in providing adequate services to both ends of the
domain owners and customers.
wide range of topics in the presentations and discussion panels enriched and
deepened my understanding of the best practices in domain registration and all
challenges and opportunities facing the local ccTLDs.
was very impressed with the fine organization and planning of the event and
with the variety of issues presented at the meeting.
again let me reiterate my appreciation for the APTLD board members for their
fine work that they do at the APTLD and for the chance to meet and interact
with many colleagues.
