Korea's effort to advance internet environment including IPv6 deployment
The Korean government has actively engaged in various activities to enhance internet environment as an ICT power house.
We foster a multi-stakeholder discussion to develop national internet policy and to participate in the global dialogue including establishing 'Korea Internet Governance Alliance (KIGA)' in 2012. Another important ongoing effort to enhance internet environment is to promote IPv6 deployment. In this open forum, we want to review the ways IPv6 have sailed and try to find the reason why there are gaps among countries in IPv6 adoption rate. And we will discuss solutions how to promote IPv6 deployment. Korea has been pushing away with various capacity building activities to support less developed countries. Among others, for instance, the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning operates ICT training program called K-LinK for government officials from other countries.
In addition, Korea keeps to engage various international fora and dialogue including participating in NETmundial as part of the High-level Multistakeholder Committee. And we are committed to contributing to the international internet governance discussion as the chair of the upcoming ITU Plenipotentiary Conference to be held in Busan in October.
Through this open Forum, we would like to share our experiences and take a broad variety of ideas and recommendations for the wary forward.
