Hello everyone,

The last few weeks have been very intense, packed with several meetings of
interest to the Internet governance community, such as the WSIS Forum,
UNCTAD eCommerce week and the Western Balkans Digital Summit. For those who
did not have the chance to follow discussions, the just-in-time reporting
from these meetings produced by the Geneva Internet Platform and
DiploFoundation could be handy. The links can be found below.

All the best wishes,
Marilia
