ICANN New gTLD Forum in Beijing

ICANN’s CEO and a group of top experts in China spoke at a Beijing event on December 8, 2011 aimed at informing, educating and engaging China’s business and Internet communities, as part of ICANN’s global gTLD communication program.

Beckstrom praised China’s role in helping to build a strong global Internet and for helping to make Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) a reality in China, for the benefit of its 1.3 billion people. IDNs facilitate the use of non-Latin characters, like Chinese, in Internet domain names.

Prof. Xue summarized the Chinese Internet community’s contribution to DNS and particularly to IDN technology and policy development. She emphasized the important of global outreach observing the principles of multilingualism and culture diversity.
