Thank you for including me in this SIDS list, as my home Puerto Rico is (or should) be considered such an entity.

> This will require moderators, I was thinking Tracy Hackshaw could give some opening remarks as a Government representative of Trinidad and Tobago and SIDS involvement within the IGF space. Noting that Tracy will be heavily involved in the ISOC Stream, I was hoping that Peng Hwa (civil society) and Bevil Wooding (technical community) could be moderators for the SIDS Event.

> I was also just advised 30 minutes ago that someone had cancelled their Booth Booking so it has been given to us as SIDS, which means, we can invite any SIDS member to showcase their countries and other material etc. 
> Objective would be to create an Alliance and Mailing List for those from SIDS communities where there can share information, challenges and resources, networking opportunities and also to provide an active base with which to comfortably apply for many workshops in 2018.
