AfriNIC-16: 12th – 18th May 2012, Serekunda, Gambia

Mauritius, 9th May 2012 – AfriNIC-16, the African Network Information Centre’s (AfriNIC) 16th bi-annual meeting together with AfNOG (The African Network Operators Group) will take place in Serekunda, The Gambia from the 12th – 18th May 2012.  This year our Public Policy Meeting will host among others the first African Internet Summit and the sixth meeting of the African Government Working Group (AfGWG).

 This Annual African Internet Summit will be a platform where all key development issues faced by Africa will be discussed and provide a more business-oriented structure to better meet the Operators’ needs in Africa. As the future growth of Internet in Africa will be through mobile operators, AfriNIC through the uniqueness of its mandate will reaffirm its support to all African Network Operators.

 Adiel Akplogan, CEO of AfriNIC comments, “The uniqueness of this first AfriNIC event is the essence of our mission to go beyond the simple core of IP engineering capacity building and be an active player in the African Internet community. Our entire stakeholder spectrum has shown an increasing interest in playing an even more active role in understanding the Internet infrastructure.

It’s vital that all key stakeholders are brought together in ways such as this event allows us to. It’s only through working together that we can guarantee continued growth of an Internet economy in Africa.”
