APNIC participated at AFRINIC 25 in Mauritius from 25 to 30 November 2016.

Around 240 people from 47 economies took part in training sessions, workshops, tutorials, policy development discussions, plenary sessions, elections and networking events.

Of the five policy proposals discussed during the Policy Development Working Group, one reached consensus – ‘IPv4 Resources Transfer within AFRINIC region’.

APNIC activities:

  • George Kuo, Richard Brown and Guangliang Pan attended conference sessions, including the Special General Members Meeting.
  • George presented the APNIC Update, provided feedback during the policy discussion and assisted the voting proceedings as a neutral party for the AFRINIC Governance Committee Election and Special Resolutions changes.

  • Guangliang gave an update on APNIC’s recent policy discussion on prop-116: Prohibit to transfer IPv4 addresses in the final /8 block.
  • George and Guangliang also attended a collaboration meeting with staff from other RIRs to discuss the Identifier Technology Health Indicators (ITHI) project.

The AFRINIC Blog has a great wrap up of the event.
