The Public Policy Forum is a space for presenting, debating and approving proposed rules or policies to be applied to the management of Internet resources in the African and Indian Ocean region.
With a packed session and several policy proposals to discuss, the PDWG co-Chairs welcomed the attendees and gave an overview of the AFRINIC community policy development process and building consensus, and the day's agenda.
The community discussed two policy proposals on the Day:

- Update of PDP | AFPUB-2021-GEN-002-DRAFT03 by Jordi Palet Matinez

The AfGWG is dedicated to strengthening the collaboration between African Governments, Regulators, and Law Enforcement Authorities, to create a dynamic framework to address general Internet governance and accelerate sustainable development challenges in Africa, specifically those related to the management of Internet number resources.

A workshop on the Mauritius Internet Exchange Point (MIXP) opened the day. The Mauritius Internet Exchange Point (MIXP) is the first Internet Exchange Point in Mauritius. It is open to any network operator who thinks they can make their network more efficient through peering. (Source: https://www.mixp.org/) Keessun FOKEERAH, a member of the Mauritius Internet Exchange Point, led the meeting. Created in 2005, this MIXP, according to the moderator of the day, has long been rather dormant. But this has changed in recent years and relatively exponential traffic is observed on the line. The objective of this workshop was to bring together all the stakeholders involved in the MIXP. Also to share experiences with other countries attending the summit and to create an African community on IXPs. This interview tells us more about the content and outcomes of this session.
Interviews of the Day
Several interviews were conducted with attendees from the MIXP session and the instructor Keesun Fokeerah.
