> Dear Colleagues,
> The RALO Leaders met with the ICANN CEO Göran Marby as scheduled, and as
> an fyi, here is the summary of the 2 main questions received from our RALO:
> CEO vision for Africa:
> The CEO pointed out that African Internet penetration is around 30% and
> that ICANN org is  aware that Africans need to access the internet in their
> local languages. Göran Marby noted that one of the reasons for IDNs is
> because the internet is also very local and that people want to access
> local content. He also noted the African strategy, which was developed in a
> bottom up process, which takes into account all of the issues impacting the
> internet access and development in Africa. The CEO expressed his views that
> the internet has the ability to bring information to all, connecting the
> poor which has the potential to lift them out of poverty.
> Timezone for the Virtual ICANN meeting:
> The CEO Göran Marby noted the challenge with trying to strike a balance on
> the timezone issue and thanked the community for making an effort to still
> participate. He encouraged that we continue to bear with this,
> accommodating one another in solidarity.
> Regards
