Part I Content Self-regulation Study Report

With growing concerns about potentially illegal and/or harmful content on the Net, what kind of social mechanism will most effectively address these issues? APIA commissioned an independent study on this self-regulation, headed by Dr. Ang Peng Hwa, and would like to share the result with the Internet community in Asia Pacific.

Part II Digital Divide or Digital Opportunity?
(Consultation for G8 DOT Force activity)

At the Okinawa Summit last July, G8 countries agreed to set-up the Digital Opportunity Task Force, or DOT Force, to address the potential dangers of leaving developing nations behind in the growth of the new digital economy.

In co-operation with GLOCOM (Center for Global Communications, International University of Japan), we would like to discuss how to include all players in the potential new prosperity. This is part of G8 consultation process and GLOCOM is designated as NPO representative to DOT Force from Japan.
