African Union Commissioner to Address ICANN's Durban Public Meeting
2 July 2013

Dr. Elham Ibrahim, the African Union Commissioner for Infrastructure and Energy, will address the welcoming session of ICANN47 on 15 July in Durban, South Africa.

The participation of the honorable Commissioner in the opening session of ICANN47 reflects the partnership between the African Union and ICANN that began at ICANN42 in Dakar, Senegal. This partnership has continued to grow and strengthen since it began in 2011, especially over the past year. The African Union has been one of the strongest supporters of ICANN's African strategy, and the results of this strategy's implementation will be shared during our Durban meeting.

Dr. Ibrahim has over thirty years of experience in electrical interconnection, energy strategy, network design and renewable energy. Prior to her position with the African Union, she served as the First Under Secretary of State in the Ministry of Electricity and Energy in Egypt, as well as the General Manager for training and promotion in Egypt's New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA).

We are honored to have Dr. Ibrahim address the global ICANN community as it gathers in Africa.
