Nominee statement
 

One years ago, I was nominated and this year I have been nominated again. I don’t take the nominations for the APNIC EC election lightly. I appreciate the trust that is bestowed on me when such nominations are given by esteemed colleagues. It's such an honour for me to be nominated for the APNIC EC election. My experiences and innovative ideas will no doubt help the community and the internet in the region.

I attended the University of Groningen from 2008 to 2012 where I read, international economics and business. During my subsequent work and research Netherlands, I learned in-depth about internet practices such as Internet Service Providers (ISPs), infrastructure hosting, and cloud computing. This knowledge I gained proved to be invaluable and helped me establish an extensive network within the industry.
 

As one of the leading voices for Internet Service Providers (ISPs), internet governance and cloud computing, I advocate for "One World, One Internet" via the company I founded in 2016, LARUS Limited. My primary focus is to ensure that internet connection services are accessible to everyone in a transparent way, where all members are treated equally regardless of race or economic class.
 

LARUS Limited is also a market leader for reliable IP solutions globally, and we are still working hard to reach our goal of ensuring that everyone has access to the Internet.
 

My passion for the past few years has been the LARUS foundation, a non-profit organization that I established in 2019. LARUS Foundation promotes internet education to ensure that the next generation has extensive knowledge of the Internet and how it works. I believe that the key to a better internet lies with future generations. The foundation’s mission is to educate the next generation on internet practices and governance, especially in developing countries where millions do not have access to a good and stable internet connection.
 

Since its conception and until today, LARUS Foundation has educated and sponsored thousands of students in developing countries, helping them learn more about the Internet and attending international conferences.
 

As a nominee for APNIC EC election I plan to be a positive force for effective change regarding Protecting the value of IP address registration for all members, promoting IPv6, and the stability of internet governance. Also, embracing the IPv4 market also requires nurturing of healthy competition within it. Being a member of PTC (Pacific Telecommunications Council Advisory Council), also brings valuable experience to the APNIC Executive Council.
 

As a nominee I have put a plan together that will revolutionise our ecosystem and the way it is delivered.
 

I pledge to you to work on the following platform:

  • Reduce your membership fees by 30 percent by restructuring and cutting APNIC’s overheads and costs.

  • To champion a positive working relationship with all governments across our region but firmly reject any governmental control of RIRs.

  • Be the strong voice for your business, regardless of your size or location, by championing and building a free market, where businesses are free to run unhindered by cutting bureaucracy and interference.

  • Make APNIC carbon neutral by 2030 by reducing travel and improving corporate efficiencies and investments.

  • Ensure the executive team of APNIC are held accountable to members through regular and proactive updates with fair and transparent scrutiny.

  • Host monthly open sessions with all members who can reach me, ask questions, and hold me to account, and I would ask all members of the EC to join me.
     

I certainly believe that now is the time that we all come together and create a community stronger than ever. And its strength consists of its ambitious, determined, and like-minded individuals who are striving towards the same goal.
 

I'm eager to be part of that community and work hand in hand with every individual in it and I promise to explore all avenues and resources available to me to accomplish the goals of APNIC EC.
