Nominee's Statement

I feel honored to be nominated for APNIC EC election. I’ve been working with APNIC community since the beginning. I was APNIC Policy SIG chair. Twenty five APNIC policies were approved and implemented during my tenure as Policy SIG chair.  I was ASO Address Council member from Asia Pacific region since 2001. Three global address policies were successfully implemented during my tenure as the Address Council member. I am enthusiastic about helping the advancement of internet technology. I am the co-author of IETF RFC3743 – IDN administration guideline, which is recognized as a critical element in the global IDN framework.

The Internet is a rapid changing environment. There are challenges in front of APNIC community: IANA stewardship transition, Internet Governance, IPv6 adoption, RPKI implementation, Infrastructure stability. I'm certain that we share the hope that we can turn challenges into opportunities. Thing doesn't happen in short term, it happens only because everyone gets involved. As I accept the responsibility, I already commit myself to serve the community. Let's work together starting out in the right direction.
