Support from IDRC
As a leading international donor agency that has been supporting ICT4D projects in the Asia Pacific region for more than twenty years, we have made significant investments into building the Asian Internet and ICT community. We believe that a
sponsored "ASIA" TLD will be a valuable addition to the Internet name space. The Asian community is a vibrant and growing one, and a new domain that represents our shared hopes and common interests will help encourage the Asian spirit of community in cyberspace.
We believe that the governance structure of the DotAsia Organisation ensures broad representation from the community it intends to serve, and we thus strongly support the DotAsia Organisation and the ".ASIA" sTLD proposal.
