APNIC participated in the third meeting of the Asia Pacific Telecommunity’s (APT) PP18 Preparatory Group (APT PP18-3) from 18 to 21 June 2018 in Melbourne, Australia.
PP18-3 is the third in a series of four meetings organized to prepare regional positions ahead of the International Telecommunications Union’s Plenipotentiary Conference (ITU PP-18).
The highest policy-making body of the ITU, the Plenipotentiary Conference 2018 will be held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from Monday, 29 October to Friday, 16 November 2018.
The objective of the APT preparatory process is to assist the Asia Pacific Member States to prepare for PP-18 and to coordinate the formation of regional positions and contributions.
In addition to proposals to suppress Resolution 185 on Global flight tracking for civil aviation, and for no change to the ITU Constitution and Convention, there are 13 proposals that are now classified as Draft Provisional APT Common Proposals (PACPs), meaning they will be exposed to one final round of review before being voted on by all the Member Administrations in the APT region.
A further six proposals look likely to be considered as Draft PACPs at the fourth and final meeting of the preparatory group when it reconvenes in Kuala Lumpur this August.
- APNIC, in conjunction with the Internet Society, hosted a reception for participants of the APT PP18 preparatory process.
- Adam Gosling represented APNIC as an Affiliate Member of the APT. He participated in the meeting as a resource for delegations interested in understanding the activities of the Internet addressing community.
