I feel honored to be nominated for APNIC EC election. I’ve been working with APNIC community since the beginning. I was APNIC Policy SIG chair. Twenty five APNIC policies were approved and implemented during my tenure as Policy SIG chair. I was ASO Address Council member from Asia Pacific region since 2001. Three global address policies were successfully implemented during my tenure as the Address Council member. I am enthusiastic about helping the advancement of internet technology.

The Internet is a rapid changing environment. IPv6 adoption, IoT security, PKI implementation, and new Internet governance model, .etc. All of these issues are challenges for us.
