|Description||The Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC), in collaboration with the Government of Mongolia, MobiCom and MobiNet, held a one-day conference on the 21 October 2010 at Kempinski Hotel Khan Palace in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The conference focused on the evolution of the Internet with the theme ‘Future of the Internet in Mongolia’.
Mongolia is one of the fastest growing economies in the Asia Pacific region and is fast becoming an influential Internet stakeholder. The rapid Internet growth in Mongolia is reshaping the way business is run. Local conditions require local solutions, assisted and informed by the technical expertise and policy experience of leading Internet community experts. The mutual benefits of this approach are clear. Local Internet communities get exposure to Internet issues of global and regional importance, and access to world class technology and policy experts.
The challenges of improving Internet growth are multifaceted and interrelated, particularly in developing countries like Mongolia. They include, for example, managing critical internet resources, the regulatory and policy environment for information and telecommunications services, access to technical skills and knowledge, language diversity, and reliability of basic infrastructure and services.
This conference in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia will bring together local and international policy and technical experts, government, network operators, the private sector and the user community to discuss and deliberate on the current state of Internet. It will highlight some of the challenges and opportunities as the Internet scales towards a user base of two billion and beyond, including some of the emerging issues that could affect Internet use and growth in Mongolia.
