LOS ANGELES - ICANN’s Middle East and Adjoining Countries Strategy Working Group (MEAC-SWG) announced a call for public comment on the draft MEAC 2016-2019 strategy. Consisting of 48 members and 2 observers, the MEAC-SWG was formed in June 2016 to develop ICANN’s regional engagement strategy. In developing the strategy, the MEAC-SWG followed the ICANN 2016-2020 strategic plan laid down in the ICANN bylaws, addressing the plan’s five strategic objectives below in the region. 

Evolve and further globalize ICANN;
Support a healthy, stable, and resilient unique identifier ecosystem;
Advance organizational, technological and operational excellence;
Promote ICANN’s role and multistakeholder approach;
Develop and implement a global public interest framework bounded by ICANN’s mission.
According to ICANN, the overall strategic objective is to “attract more active and engaged participants from the region to contribute to ICANN's policy development processes and to acquire leading roles within the ICANN community”. The strategy has identified three main focus areas:

Support a Secure, Stable and Resilient DNS Infrastructure in the MEAC Region
Promote a Healthy and Competitive Domain Name Marketplace in the MEAC Region
Clarify ICANN's Role in an Evolving Internet Ecosystem through Engaging with the MEAC Community
