    Date published: 11 June 2017

    Egypt, represented by the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA), will participate in the second Open Consultations and Multi-Stakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) meeting of the Internet governance Forum (IGF) 2017 preparatory cycle that will take place on June 12-14 at the headquarters of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), in Geneva, Switzerland. The main purpose of the three-day meeting is to discuss the program and structure of IGF 2017— that will be held on December 18-21 in Geneva, and other ongoing IGF activities forward.

    NTRA is a member of MAG, and participates in its meeting to develop a detailed program for IGF annual meetings, select workshops and main topics, organize main sessions and when necessary partake in specialized working groups.

    IGF is a multi-stakeholder space for dialogue regarding policies adopted in 2006 by the United Nations General Secretariat. The IGF was first convened in 2005 by the United Nations General Assembly. With the renewal of its mandate by the United Nations in December 2015, the IGF consolidates itself as a platform to bring people together from various stakeholder groups as equals. At their annual meeting, delegates discuss, exchange information and share good practices with each other.

    The IGF facilitates a common understanding of how to maximize Internet opportunities and address risks and challenges that arise. The IGF is also a space that gives developing countries the same opportunity as wealthier nations to engage in the debate on Internet governance and to facilitate their participation in existing arrangements.
