Singapore on Internet Governance & ICANN

Singapore’s Comments to the WGIG on the Draft Working Papers express some concerns regarding ICANN:

"Taking the first two issues: IP addresses and Internet names as well as Root Server Administration, the WGIG would need to study how effectively multi-stakeholder interests are accommodated and satisfied given the constructs and frameworks that already exist today. This would have to include commencing a frank and constructive dialogue on the efficacy of ICANN. Singapore is of the opinion that ICANN has been a sound public-private sector collaborative effort in many respects. However, we are also of the view that improvements are necessary in many areas, particularly in ICANN’s internationalization efforts and in its on-going consideration of public policy issues as expressed by governments. "
