U.S. Coordinator for International Communications and Information Policy Ambassador Daniel A. Sepulveda, Coordinator for Cyber Issues Christopher Painter, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor Scott Busby, will travel to Bali, Indonesia for the 2013 Internet Governance Forum (IGF), October 22-25.
The IGF was established by the World Summit on the Information Society to draw together a broad community of internet stakeholders, including governments, the private sector, civil society, academia, etc., to address evolving questions related to internet governance, internet freedom, and cyber security.
The United States believes the IGF represents an important venue through which to promote the kind of multi-stakeholder processes that have made the internet an engine of global economic growth and innovation. The overarching theme for the 2013 IGF meeting is: "Building Bridges"- Enhancing Multistakeholder Cooperation for Growth and Sustainable Development."
