ICANN willing to get China more involved in Internet management

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 15 (Xinhua) — “China has a huge role to play in the global Internet. Without China and without complete Chinese participation in ICANN, ICANN frankly does not have a global legitimacy,” Fadi Chehade, the newly appointed ICANN president, told Xinhua in an exclusive interview.

Chehade is travelling to Asia on Friday for the first time as the CEO of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a nonprofit private organization in charge of contentious policies surrounding Internet addresses. source
