Biografía

Adrian Wan is Policy Advocacy Manager at the Internet Society. He focuses on advancing the Internet Society’s policy priorities by developing knowledge of policy issues affecting the Internet’s openness, global reach, trustworthiness, and security, especially in Asia-Pacific, for the Internet Society community.

A former business and technology journalist with the South China Morning Post based in Hong Kong and Beijing, he found interest in technology policy and engagement in Asia-Pacific, having worked in organizations including the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), Microsoft, and Huawei.

He gained a Google Policy Fellowship to research on digital trade and digital skills development for APEC in 2016. In One of the reports he worked on, he analyzed emerging policy issues that limited the the Internet's full potentials and set back the region's economic growth.

In Microsoft, he analyzed trade agreements and policies concerning data protection, privacy, cybersecurity, intellectual property, among others, in Asia-Pacific. In Huawei, he handled public policy and communications.

He holds a Master’s in Public Policy at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore, specializing in economic policy and analysis. He did his first degree at the Hong Kong Baptist University, majoring in International Journalism and minoring in French studies.

He is fluent in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin, and has a working knowledge of French and Vietnamese. He fell in love with Vietnam (and its coffee) during an internship in Ho Chi Minh City when he was a student and continues to learn the language.

He is based in Singapore.
