We are pleased to announce that a regional meeting
on Internet Governance will be held in Singapore from
Aug 11th to 13th to discuss about the formation of new
self-governance mechanism of Internet.

This meeting is positioned as the third in the
international workshop series, being organized by IFWP
(International Forum on White Paper), an ad-hoc group
of industry associations and other interested parties
formulated to help reach international consensus on the
coordination issues of Internet management led by private
sector initiatives.  The first workshop was already
held in Washington D.C, on July 1-2, with more than 200
participants from North and South America, Europe and
Asia. The second meeting was held in Geneva on July 24-25
which co-located with INET'98.  Another IFWP meeting is
also planned to be held in Argentina, Aug 20-21.

The Singapore meeting is jointly organized by local
host groups including APNG (Asia Pacific Networking
Group), APNIC (Asia Pacific Network Information Center),
APIA Asia & Pacific Internet Association), APPLe (Asia
Pacific Policy and Legal Forum), APDIP (Asia Pacific
Development Information Program) of UNDP(United Nations
Development Program) and PAN (Pan Asia Networking) of IDRC
(International Development Research Centre) and SGNIC
(Singapore Network Information Centre).

Following the release of the US Government's so called
White Paper in June, a series of efforts to help create a
new global, non-profit, private and neutral organization
that will manage such Internet resources as Domain Name,
IP Address and Protocols is underway world-wide.

This meeting is intended to participate these efforts and
raise voices and concerns from Asia Pacific region to the
global Internet Community. The purpose of these workshops
i s to bring together the diverse stakeholder groups and
experts to:
1) learn, identify and articulate the issues,
2) prepare models, set of common principles, structures
   and general charter provisions for the formation of
   "New IANA Corporation" or equivalent of that,
3) formulate a process to bring true global perspective
   and participation to this new self-governance mechanisms
   by raising regional interests.

The event is scheduled on August 11-13, at the Orchard
Hotel in Singapore, and will bring together regional
experts and stakeholders as well as key members of the
