PAN works with least developing country partners in Asia by supporting their ICT field applications projects

- telecenters, development oriented ISP activities, distance education technologies, e-commerce, innovative web applications, telemedicine, GIS, fonts, OSS issues … women in ICTs ……

PAN wants its least developing country partners to network with APNG

an invitation to apng
An Invitation to APNG

to contribute to the PAN All Partners Conference

@ Vientiane, 2003 by:

  • Integrating a plenary and/or training programme on Internet governance issues
  • thinking about the prospect of a future PAN-All Partners Conference combined with APNG Conference that could equate to a regular Asian ICT Conference, with majority Asian participation, an Asia agenda that is also meaningful to Asia’s least developing countries, and attended by them as well
