[rpd] Inter-RIR Resource

Dear All,
My name is Pascal, I'm fellows AFRINIC-29
I know that the inter-RIR policy will be beneficial for Africa but I support the idea that the inter-RIR resource tranfer is balancing outgoing and incoming.
Although the policy allows the transfer of only legacy resources to other regions and allows the inbound transfer of all resources from other regions to the AFRINIC region.
If there are more incoming resources, the transfer of other legacy resources to other RIRs can be allowed

I think we have to tell the members to put in place the IPV6,
At Stephen's presentation last week I saw that some country in Africa that has deployed IPV6 and have the operators also involve so that the resources are involved.

Best regard,
