During the last recent years ICANN has established new coordinating points to better serve its clients worldwide, in Singapore and Istanbul, Turkey. The one in Asia emerged in August 2013 and both of them have increased their personnel strength and functional support.
Due to organizational reasons, in order to increase efficiency and after thorough evaluations about the costs of the new office, it has been approved that the Asian hub will be transferred to a larger location, namely FY16, on the 1st October 2015.
They will continue providing a wide range of services starting from registry or registrar services management, human resources, IT and legal services, stakeholder engagement, contracts issues and not least, customer support. All of these will be offered and coordinated by eighteen staff members, while in Istanbul twelve of their colleagues will be involved into policy development support, in addition to what was previously mentioned. There are currently plans to hire Customer Services in Istanbul, too, in order to offer multilingual support to anyone that might need it.
In accordance to its globalization strategy, ICANN will stick to its efforts to provide a secure and stable Internet network through his three worldwide hubs for their community of users.
