Hii JP,
how is Mexico,
The IGF Burundi was a success I tell u,
The first day we were around 100 participants and my theme as well gave a view on IGF process where we discussed on issues and benefits we could gain from.
the discussions went to the level of discussing about ICANN function and we maintained the discussions at national level,all presentations were great and among participants ,were high Gvt representatives included some of Senate,Ministry of TPT ,etc...
Some recommendations have been drafted and will be posted to the ISOC website.
It was a great chanllenge also where we called political parties willing to win in 2010 to include in their propaganda an ICT and Internet access to all Burundians,

I will attend EAIGF ,hope to meet you there,
