DotAsia Chair Remarks:
Dear DotAsia Members,
I am most pleased to welcome you as a new DotAsia Board Chair, yet another one in a long line of outstanding personalities who have laid a solid foundation for its long-lasting legacy. We also have new Committee Chairs who represent various stakeholder groups and are keen to contribute to its advancement. The changes in the Board couldn’t be timelier as it looks like that we are facing the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel and should brace up for future changes to stay put ...

I am honored to be elected and serve the Board of DotAsia. I hope my experience in the domain industry as Ex-Asian Managing Director of Network Solutions (Verisign Inc) and my 25+ years of corporate executive and board experience would help DotAsia strategically and operationally to achieve DotAsia mission and vision.

Global carbon emissions dropped by 5.8% in 2020, which is the largest reduction ever, due to the pandemic lockdown and economic decline, but such decrease is only considered to be temporary. It is expected to rebound by 4.8% due to economic recovery.

With growing demand for online activities such as working from home, e-learning, online shopping etc., do you realise how the Internet contributes to carbon emissions?

I'm proud to present Central Asia in a board of unified domain of Asia. In a modern world we, Asian, as a whole continent have a tool to bring our voice to the world. DotAsia should be able to present any of the Asian country with tourist, cultural, market and labour potential. We will share our experience with Internet Governance to Central Asian countries and involve youth to educational initiatives.

Dear DotAsia Members,

I am most pleased to welcome you as a new DotAsia Board Chair, yet another one in a long line of outstanding personalities who have laid a solid foundation for its long-lasting legacy. We also have new Committee Chairs who represent various stakeholder groups and are keen to contribute to its advancement. The changes in the Board couldn’t be timelier as it looks like that we are facing the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel and should brace up for future changes to stay put and be able to respond to the evolving environment.

With new trends in the geopolitical landscape and the global socio-economic development, new rules of the game in the ICT and Internet area, continuous innovation in the Names industry in particular, DotAsia should multiply the effort to stay relevant and responsive and to keep delivering on its mission which goes far beyond a regular gTLD’s.

Not only should we work harder to bolster the number of registrations to serve ¾ of the global population and catch up with market leaders – our mission is to champion the principles and values behind the notion of Internet Governance and give everyone- and the young generation in the first place – a voice and chance for getting engaged with, and contribute to, the global Internet community’s strive for advancing a unique free, open, truly universally accessible, and affordable internet.

DotAsia has every reason for being proud for what has been done to date on this path; yet, we have no right to sink in self-complacency, for such an effort demands Board’s full commitment and high standards of corporate governance and personal integrity; staff’s professionalism and dedication; and new standards of openness, transparency and accountability, and community engagement.

The road ahead is rocky but has it ever been different? We are confident that with the community ‘s support we will be able to progress fast and benefit all the stakeholders across Asia Pacific.
