We have heard a lot of analysis and hypothesis on what happened in Dubai last December but beside the them against us theory, the reality is that in many developing countries the digital economy does not have the same structure as you can see in most of developed country particularly in the US. The Industry is still either very young or completely inexistent as driver of the local economy. Most of what is known is known through consumption of for foreign production. In most of these countries the Government is yet to find the right model that do not completely give up that promising economy to outside player. While at the same time they have to make sure that are fully accountable to their population on their digital security! 11Additional Highlights40 full time staff as of Dec 2014Creation of 2 New Departments and UnitCapacity Building and Community EngagementResearch and New TechnologyCustomer Service Unit (within Member Services Department)2.74 /8 available in our IPv4 Pool end of 2014414 Members with IPv6 prefixes (36 % of membership ratio but only 15 % visibility)in 2014IPv6 prefixes allocated to 49 of 56 African economies (IPv6 coverage of 88% in Africa)ElectionsAFRINIC Board (two seats - Southern and Eastern) in June 2015Policy Development Working Group: one co-Chair in June 2015NRO-NC/ICANN ASO AC (one Representative) in Nov 2015
