Apologies for the crossposting but this I found interesting:
SAO PAULO, June 30 (Xinhua) -- Jack Ma, founder of China's ecommerce giant Alibaba, was elected co-chairman of the Global Internet Governance Alliance (GIGA) at the first general meeting of GIGA council held here Tuesday.
"This election signifies trust in China's Internet, and how China governs its Internet," said Ma.
The meeting was set to discuss key issues related to international cooperation on Internet governance while highlighting China's role.
Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff had called for a just and equal global Internet environment and regarded China as the "key factor to the success of global Internet governance," said Fadi Chehade, president of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
Rousseff had suggested he find Chinese partners for cooperation, Chehade said.
To establish a multiple-stakeholder platform, Chehade said that dialogues among different partners should be improved, the platform should be transparent and just, and all stakeholders should be able to equally participate in global Internet governance.
GIGA is co-sponsored by ICANN, the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee and the World Economic Forum to provide a platform for the discussion of Internet governance solutions.
