Theme: Empowering communities in Asia Pacific to build an affordable, inclusive, open and secure Internet

Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum (APrIGF) is one of the key regional initiatives on Internet governance. By adopting the multi-stakeholder approach as its core principle, APrIGF serves as a platform for discussion, exchange and collaboration at a regional level, and also where possible to aggregate national IGF discussions, ultimately advance the Internet governance development in the Asia Pacific region.

The first day (13th) was the Capacity Building Day and the main conference is during the 14th-16th. Prior to the conference, the Internet Society ran moderated online training sessions for the fellows, and supported the fellowship program that focused on a greater participation from the Pacific Islands. We also co-sponsored the closing social.

Vint Cerf gave the keynote speech and the event was inaugurated by Charlot Salwai, the Prime Minister of Vanuatu.
