  2. 2. Ladies and Gentlemen, dear Colleagues, My name is Anja Gengo and I have the pleasure to work from the current IGF Secretariat’s position, with many of the IGF initiatives existing on national, sub regional and regional IGF. Ghana is one of them, and I have to say that we have wonderful communication and most importantly , excellent mutual cooperation with the aim of supporting each other’s good work on Internet Governance! By listening carefully today your program and being impressed by the speakers and mostly by the presented content, I am very thankful that you have invited me to share with all of you some updates regarding similar ongoing activities that are happening around the world, and all that thanks to the 65 teams of our colleagues that are organizing national, sub-regional and regional IGFs (we refer to them as the NRIs). I hope you all can see the slides shared with you, where we illustrated scheduled annual events of the NRIs. The map itself shows that the IGFs being allocated around the world, with many of new IGFs emerging.

  9. 9. • This year’s IGF that will be in Mexico in December, is critically important for the NRIs as a network. One of the most important activities for us is the fact that for the very first time, the NRIs will host a joint MAIN SESSION at the global IGF meeting! The preparations are ongoing for creating a unique session for an audience of 2000 at the IGF, with the speakers from all over the world on IG sharing their perspectives. This will be followed by a joint Booth, a gathering point for all NRIs at the IGF. A separate session, of 90 minutes will be organized as well, so you and all your NRIs colleagues can address the issues that are particular for your initiative and are of administrative or management nature. • I won’t be taking any more time as we are here to hear from Marilyn’s long work experience on IG, but I would like to invite you to visit the IGF website, section NRIs, or contact the Secretariat directly, through Eric and Wisdom, so that we can connect and work together on these important for all of us, tasks. • Once again, thank you all very much, especially Wisdom and Eric, prof. Nii, for a wonderful day you gave us all, and for this opportunity, in particular!
