Internet as global public good outlined at WSIS+10 HLM

Many ICT and Internet-related issues were outlined by countries and other stakeholders who delivered statements during the United Nations high level meeting on the WSIS+10 review. Among these, references were made to the fact that the Internet has become such an intrinsic part of society and of our everyday life that it has to be looked at as a global public good. Such references were particularly underlined in the statement of Ecuador (delivering a statement on behalf of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States) and Finland. A summary report of the high-level meeting is available.
