Singapore: Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced today that it has moved its APAC hub to a new office, located in the South Beach Tower in the Esplanade area. The move is in line with ICANN’s expanded presence in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
At the official opening ceremony today, ICANN’s Chief Operating Officer Susanna Wong Bennett said, “Expanding our APAC Hub is key to ICANN’s strategic focus and commitment to globalization. This positions ICANN for long-term stability as we continue our work of maintaining a secure, stable and interoperable Internet and cements the vision of having three global hubs to serve the global community.”
The ICANN APAC Hub was established in Singapore in August 2013 to better serve the stakeholders in this region and recently celebrated its second anniversary.
“We knew from the start that the APAC Hub had to play catch-up with the fast-evolving Internet user demographic in the region. To address the needs of the region, we quintupled our staff headcount over the past two years so that we are now able to provide a wide range of services,” said Kuek Yu-Chuang, Vice President and Managing Director for ICANN Asia Pacific.
ICANN currently has a 30-strong staff team in the region, providing services such as registry and registrar support, stakeholder engagement, contractual compliance, security capacity building, communications and customer service, as well as support functions such as operations, IT, legal, finance and human resources.
The new Singapore office also houses facilities to conduct community meetings and trainings.
