    ICC and members of its BASIS initiative, Business Action to Support the Information Society are pleased to submit this report to the UN Commission on Science and Technology for Development (CSTD) as a contribution to the CSTD’s report for 2010 and the thirteenth session of the Commission in May 2010.

    ICC launched the BASIS initiative in 2006 to serve as a vehicle to bring business expertise, experience and priorities to the post-WSIS processes, including the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), WSIS follow-up and implementation. ICC and BASIS members have been active contributors to the IGF, WSIS action lines, and the CSTD follow-up each year. ICC/BASIS member companies and associations, from across sectors and geographies, run activities, partnerships and initiatives that further the WSIS goals, and implement the actions outlined by the summits in Geneva and Tunis.
