BELOKURIKHA, Altai Territory, October 31 (Itar-Tass) — Member-states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization have real opportunities to create a new global Internet management system, the director of the SCO Business Club, Denis Tyurin, told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The Russian and international expert community have many questions to the modern Internet management system. Generally speaking we continue to observe a situation, when the United States keeps the cut-out tool from the global information network in its hands. Despite efforts of the international community to make this system more balanced, the Americans have no plans to hand over leverages of controls,” Tyurin said.
He expressed confidence that SCO member-states will be able to influence these processes.
“Many countries that united within the framework of the SCO demonstrate similar approaches to this problem,” he said. “The Internet should be managed through international structures. Possibly, the SCO as the organization serving as an example to other international structures can become a prototype of a global Internet management system.”
“The system should be based on collective decision making,” he said expressing an opinion that the creation of the SCO domain extension by analogy with domain extensions created by the European Union or the United Nations may significantly contribute to resolving this issue.
The idea of creating its domain extension appeared a year ago and is now being actively discussed by SCO member-states.
This issue was also high on the agenda of the SCO Youth Forum that opened in the Altai Territory on Wednesday and will last until November 2.
It brought together around 300 young business people from Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Belarus, Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Iran, India and Pakistan.
According to organizers, the forum will create a platform for direct communication among young entrepreneurs and business leaders of the SCO member-states.
