Organiser: Commercial Law Development Program (CLDP), U.S. Department of Commerce
The Commercial Law Development Program (CLDP) plans to facilitate IGF attendance and participation by a small number of officials of one or more government and representatives of NGOs or journalistic organizations. These attendees will likely have limited or no experience in attending IGFs. CLDP will organize a pre-conference for the attendees, which will include presentations by and discussions with leading experts on IGF-related issues. This event would be designed for the benefit of the invited attendees, although all would be welcome to observe. CLDP is a part of the United States Department of Commerce. It provides technical assistance to developing and post-conflict nations around on legal and regulatory matters through training, consultations, and support of the exchange of information and international best practices. In the ICT sector, it works to improve access to information and promote the development of a modern and state of the art communications sector.
