The just concluded Addis meeting is part of ICANN's MIGworks (Multi
Stakeholder Internet Governance) initiative . It was a kind of launching
pad for the Africa strategy.
As such, the Addis workshop and meeting were about multi stakeholderism,
and the Dns industry and market in Africa. It did not discuss any specific
gTLD applications that are subject to evaluation according to a defined
process and procedure.
The report on Addis will be posted on the Africanncommunity website as soon
