ALGIERS- Minister of Post and Information and Communication Technologies Houda-Imane Faraoun, called Wednesday in Wuhzen (China), for developing Internet on the basis of “multilateral and transparent” mode of governance, said Thursday a ministry communiqué.
In a statement delivered during the 3rd World Internet Conference placed under the theme of “Innovation- Driven Internet development for the benefit of all,” the minister underlined the importance of promoting a mode of cyberspace governance, involving all the partners in a bid to ensure reliable connectivity for all.
She added that “Internet governance should be based on the principle of guaranteeing access to the network for all.”
