Pune, Oct 26 (UNI) Dr Ajay Data, Founder and CEO of Data XGen Plus, and a global leader in email linguistic services, has taken the seat as a council member of CCNSO at the ICANN 63 meet held in Barcelona, Spain, and will represent the Asia-Pacific regions.
According to a statement from the ICANN63, Annual General Meet was held in Barcelona, Spain, from October 20 to 25, 2018. He has got a two-year term starting Friday. He was announced as the first Indian to be a member of CCNSO in early July this year.
On taking up the position at the ICANN63 meet in Spain, Dr Ajay Data said, “It is a moment of immense pride for me to be able to represent the Asia Pacific regions in the ccNSO council of ICANN.''
On the occasion, Dr Ajay Data also announced the launch of email services in French language, empowering people to freely communicate in the language of their choice and comfort.
He said,''This position provides us the opportunity to bring forward topical issues of concern of Top-Level Domains for India (like .in; .bharat) from a global perspective.''
“Approximately 170 countries are members of the CCNSO and it provides an opportunity to discuss the future of internet. Single character TLD, IDN, Policy and Name innovation are the key areas of my interest and I look forward to empowering people across the globe with the Freedom of Language,'' he said.
The Country Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO) of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is the policy-development body for global issues regarding country code top-level domains (ccTLD) within the ICANN structure. The members of ccNSO, which is ICANN's policy development body for ccTLD (country code top-level domains) issues, are all country code Top Level Domain operators from around the world.

ICANN meetings are held three times each year in different regions of the globe to enable attendees from around the world to participate in person. One meeting each year is also the organization's annual general meeting, during which new Board members take their seats. There are also a few pre-meeting workshops and working sessions when the volunteer members of the supporting organizations and advisory committees initiate their work, the statement said.
ICANN meetings provide the opportunity for an internationally diverse group of individuals and organizations to come together to discuss and develop policies for the Internet naming systems. ICANN’s international meetings have been a staple of ICANN’s multi-stakeholder bottom-up consensus-building model since its formation in 1998. At the annual general meeting, the newly seated members of the Board of Directors take the seat and thank outgoing Board members for their service.
