Due to the nature of the Internet, we are committed to the side of all public actors such as the Ministry of Post and ICT Côte d'Ivoire, regional organisations such as AFRINIC to share technical expertise, work the policy, contribute to the education and capacity building and promoting community sharing.
These are the watchwords of our commitment to the success of AFRINIC 19!
