From an outside perspective it is easier for us in Australia to be content with the situation. We only have 20 odd million people (albeit a high % of those as active internet users), compared to larger countries in the region such as:
- China â 1.3 billion
- India â 1.2 billion
- Indonesia â 248 million
- Pakistan â 190 million
- Japan â 127 million
Those top 5 alone have 150x more people than Australian and it is difficult for us to know how truly represented the above countries are as especially in the top four above being emerging markets for the Internet â a large percentage of their populations arenât yet to take to the internet at the rate we do in Australia.
This is a bit pie in the sky, but from experience it has been very easy for me to attend a Network Security & IPv6 training workshop conducted by APNIC in Brisbane â I am not sure the same would be feasible for someone living in Pakistan, China, etc?
I think the next phase of this discussion as Tony suggested should be feedback provided to APNIC through the upcoming survey (and maybe if you want your voice heard publically â add your suggestions for improving APNIC to this list?). APNIC obviously need constructive feedback to be able to improve what they do today â especially to support emerging markets & countries.

A bit of advice to those who are interested in our community. If you profess an interest in Internet Governance you need to look to the interests of the regional as a whole, above and beyond your own local countries interests - or personal bias.
This has to be said plainly. Those with nationalistic interests will never be taken seriously by the wider community. When you care about the region or globe as a whole, a put the needs of the many above the needs of the few, others will respect you and what you say will be heard a lot louder than if you are constantly saying 'me me me'.
