ISIF Asia Ambassadors
Thanks to ICANN's Asia Pacific Hub for sponsoring three ISIF Asia Ambassadors to attend ICANN 49! The Ambassadors were selected in recognition of their innovative Internet development work in our region, and they will be introduced to ICANN attendees in a video during the Opening Plenary.
There will be an opportunity for attendees on 25 March to hear from the Ambassadors about their projects, and other opportunities to fund or mentor project teams working to improve social and economic development through ICT.
APNIC's Communications Director, Tony Smith, will facilitate the session, and attendees will also hear from other past ISIF Asia recipients.

We hope to see you in Singapore or online at ICANN 49!
