The best way to support this initiative was to complete the questionnaire and I did it. While acknowledging the concrete actions undertaken so far, It is clear that we need more productive participation of the African Community in ICANN. And this initiative is warmly welcome. I believe that It will lead to the real development and ownership of the domain names industry by Africans. We need Africa based registries and registrars!
Let us all contribute to the production of a good strategic document.
Best regards,
Victor Ndonnang

That's great Pierre and the all ASWG team.
We must always start somewhere in everything. 
One step has been crossed. 
None can not throw away a newborn, while he is just starting to walk.  
Cameroon ISOC Chapter supports this initiative. 
We are looking forward to the next step.

Dear Listers,

(NB : version francaise ci- dessous)

The Icann Africa strategy Working Group held its retreat in Mauritius on 27-28 August. The meeting was facilitated by ICANN and AfriNIC.

The Group of 9 (4 initial core members + 5 Reps from regions and
Constituencies) had a fruitful gathering and will be posting its working documents on a dedicated website to facilitate public access.
The community will then have 15 days for its further comments and submissions before the group finalizes its recommendations.

The public website should be available early next week. Meanwhile, the Group wishes to thank all those who took the effort to complete the questionnaires. The evaluation of the questionnaires and primary discussions with representatives of the constituencies (Governments, Registries, registrars, registrants, ALAC, Academia..etc) allowed the group to brainstorm on strategic objectives, projects and measures of impact. A key decision of the group is to conduct further consultations and the website is going to be the conduit. You are therefore kindly requested to provide your feedback, once the site is up and running as of next week!.

We are also attaching an evaluation of the questionnaires, for your information.

Best regards
Pierre on behalf of the ASWG
