       six months

    *  prop-060: Change in the criteria for the recognition of NIRs in
       the APNIC region

APNIC Community Request for ICANN to Sign DNS Root
    The APNIC community considered ICANN's initiatives toward
    operational readiness for DNSSEC signing and informed ICANN that
    the Asia Pacific community supports efforts to sign the root of
    the DNS and called on ICANN to resolve these issues and to sign
    the root of the DNS as soon as is realistically possible.

MoU (Memorandum of Understanding)
    APNIC signed two MoUs (Memorandum of Understanding). One with
    AusNOG, the other with NZNOG. These MoUs strengthened the
    relationship between the three organizations as they agreed to
    collectively work together, share information, and facilitate
    the development of the Internet in Australia and New Zealand.
