Taiwan to Boost Internet Governance

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Taiwan’s status as a technology and innovation hub on the global stage necessitates a robust framework for Internet governance. Ensuring the efficient functioning of the digital infrastructure is crucial to maintaining its position as a vital player in the ever-evolving global digital ecosystem.

With this, Minister Audrey Tang of the Ministry of Digital Affairs (moda) attended the “Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum” (APrIGF) to discuss the direction and accomplishments in Internet governance as well as strategies for overcoming the obstacles presented by developing technology.

Minister Audrey emphasises that the APrIGF will take place in Taipei in 2020 because of the moda’s vigorous efforts. The event aims to gather collective wisdom through this platform and cooperate with the global democratic network to explore avenues for collaboration.

She added that there are many facets to internet fragmentation, and its meaning can vary depending on local laws, cultural norms, technology advancements, and linguistic hurdles. No matter how it takes shape, the internet’s future requires leveraging the combined knowledge, ingenuity, and resolve of many stakeholders.

As a prominent global platform, APrIGF is vital for promoting dialogue, exchanging expertise, and coordinating policy. The moda will persist in fortifying international ties, advancing worldwide collaboration, and collaboratively confronting the obstacles posed by the fragmentation of the internet.

The moda has produced several cooperative systems, such as DNS RPZ (Response Policy Zone), a cooperative anti-fraud tool developed by enterprises, businesses, and public associations. Minister Audrey also cited recent attempts to avoid internet scams as an example.

To keep the public from connecting to illicit websites and to quickly detect and stop scams, the Taiwan Network Information Centre (TWNIC) has the authority to immediately stop domain resolution upon receiving court decisions, administrative fines levied by government agencies, or malicious domain applications through emergency case procedures.

The Minister stressed that data from the Administration for Digital Industries’ “Application for Stoppage of Resolution of Fraudulent Domain Names List,” the 165 Anti-Scam Helpline of the National Police Agency’s “Fake Investment (Gambling) Website List,” and TWNIC’s “DNS RPZ 1.0 Court and Administrative Order Block Domain List” are all publicly accessible on the government’s open data platform.

These allow for multiple participants to access real-time updates and swift collaborative defence. Human rights organisations can also examine this data to improve accountability and transparency. By ensuring the protection of digital rights, the country can create an environment where individuals can fully exercise their rights and freedoms in the digital realm.

The Minister also stated that Internet governance entails bringing together a range of stakeholders, such as governments, businesses, and civil society organisations, to jointly influence the growth and development of the internet in accordance with their individual roles and responsibilities.

Taiwan recognises the significance of digital inclusion. A strong governance framework can help bridge the digital divide by providing equitable access to the Internet, ensuring that all citizens can reap the benefits of digital connectivity.

Taiwan’s active participation in international forums on internet governance, despite diplomatic challenges, fosters diplomatic ties and collaboration on global digital issues. By engaging with the international community, Taiwan can contribute its expertise and insights while also staying informed about the latest developments in the field.

The moda aims to keep going to pertinent international conferences, sharing Taiwan’s governance framework around the idea of “Digital Resilience for All,” strengthening ties and collaborating with democratic allies, and creating a more transparent, safe, and open online community.
