Subject: [AfrICANN-discuss] The French MFA supports new gTLD applicants in African sub-Saharan countries





True to
its commitments to end digital divide, and in
accordance with the declaration of the G8 Heads of State and Government for the
development of the Internet in countries in the southern hemisphere, the French
Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs has decided to make an endowment to
AFNIC*'s International College Fund. 


The grant of 400 K€ will be used to support generic extension
projects involving African sub-Saharan countries in 2012.


support from the Fund can be obtained by project leaders replying to the 2012
call for proposals of the Fund, which opened on 2 January 2012 : http://www.afnic.fr/medias/documents/College_International/Fonds_du_College/FCI2012/afnic-fonds-ci-appel-projets-2012.pdf

In so doing, the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs
and AFNIC are furthering their cooperation initiated in recent years to
encourage the emergence of an information society, combining the efforts of the
North and South in a spirit of co-development.

I am at
your disposal for any
further information you may need regarding this partnership. Don't hesitate
to circulate this information to project leaders who could benefit from this
