Dear Lea and Lorena,
Precisely the plan. Since it is going to be the first country IGF for
Pakistan, we will need a lot of guidance and support. I wrote to Sheetal
separately on this but we hope to finalize the concept note of the event
early next week and then we will start sharing it with global MAG
members and other relevant partners for their input.
We are very excited about the possibilities and look forward to your
Best wishes and regards
Country Director, Bytes for All, Pakistan
