I support an increased level of financial reporting, but only to the extent that itself doesn't cause extra burden and cost on APNIC.

The document detailing the activities undertaken by APNIC at the

As previously mentioned, I don't believe that the root of the issue is
business class travel or otherwise, I believe that it is demonstrating
to the membership, in a way that they accept, that the balance between
the expenditure and outcomes is appropriate.
In order to do that, there must be transparency and a level of
detailed reporting across both areas. ÂIt is only then that the
membership can determine if they find the balance appropriate.
To that end I would support an increased level of financial and
activity reporting along the lines Yamanishi-san has suggested. ÂWe do
see this increased reporting in RIRs and other multistakeholder
organisations and they are to be commended for this.
This will allow the membership to determine if outputs such as those
reported by APNIC at ICANN49 are balanced with the expenditure
required to produce them.
With regard to NetMundial, the final output document is out for
comment, so I would expect a detailed assessment by members of the
APNIC delegation would be presented any time now.
My favourate part of the document so far is:
"Internet governance discussions would benefit from improved
communication and coordination between technical and non-technical
communities, providing a better understanding about the policy
implications in technical decisions and technical implications in
policy decision making."
Ensuring that Internet Governance messages are reframed and
communicated in a way that the technical community finds easy to
access and engage with seems like something that APNIC is well placed
