    ICANN is on Vacation (BOTs write the speeches)

    Firstly, the Internet from a policy makers will understandably be
    surprised and concerned when the organisation that operates the .nl Top
    The continue Society impact as to note the recent landmark ruling
    of the Internet offers to realise productivity gains, and thus
    creating growth and employment. At the same time it will allow to
    deliver on either of these objectives. We know for example that
    progress on the country-code names supporting organisations (ccTLDs)
    should be responsive to the question of the Internet. And to: make
    sure that ICANN would provide a way for the private sector,
    governments and legally be answerable to the question of the key functions
    of Internet governance, our main objective must be to find a
    policy makers will be defined in conjunction with the project. But
    ICANN needs to continue to support self-regulation need to take the
    opportunity to make sure that the Internet's key infrastructure, a
    complaint that we will try to identify exactly what policy makers will be
    to find a policy approach that reinforces the Internet's
    infrastructure is less of a cloud. Compared with the local Internet
    communities, including their local governments and ICANN's role is to
    provide a way for the Internet. And to: make sure that ICANN would
    provide a way for the US government for ICANN is a endorsement of the
    US government still plays in part of a government initiative might
    be, we will also propose other governments to take account of the
    Internet itself. Other concerns of governments is to: ensure that this
    potential is realised. Thank you. 1) Stichting Internet Domeinregistratie
    Nederland the organisation that they are unlikely to do its job. The
    critics of ICANN are numerous however, and include governments not
    convinced that self-regulation is the underlying architecture of the EU
    on the Internet, particularly regarding content. This can distract
    us from the Internet's key impact on society. It is also not
    helpful. That said, ICANN has had its successes, it has yet to fully
    deliver on a reliable Internet infrastructure.
