Why Open and Free Internet is Important to Digital Economy?

Digitally driven economic growth continues to be one of the few bright spots in a sluggish global economy. Reducing or eliminating numerous factors that inhibit online interactions and exchange could cause this growth to be even faster and could have an even bigger impact.

To better understand these sources of “e-friction” and how they constrain economic activity, Internet Society Hong Kong has organized the Open and Free Internet Forum on 8 April. Fadi Chehade’s, President and CEO of ICANN together with a few Internet pioneers will discuss why reducing or eliminating sources of “e-friction” can grease the wheels of the Internet economy worldwide.

This Forum will be held in conjunction with Internet Hall of Frame 2014, 2-3 inductees of the year will join the panel discussion to give their valuable insight.

Date:8th Apr, 2014 (Tue)
