    ICC-BASIS members congratulate the host country of Lithuania, the organizers and the IGF secretariat on a most successful event, and look forward to working with all stakeholders to prepare another successful IGF in Nairobi, Kenya in September 2010. The host country provided a warm welcome to all participants and the special contribution of Her Excellency, Ms Dalia Grybauskaite, President of the Republic of Lithuania, was greatly appreciated, as this was the first IGF where the host head of state contributed directly.

    ICC-BASIS expresses our sincere appreciation to all members of the host country organizing team who worked throughout the year toward the success of the IGF 2010. The hard work and contributions of the hosting countries include so many aspects that contribute to the experiences and the success of the IGF itself. This contribution can be overlooked in the statements of appreciation, and ICC-BASIS wishes to note with appreciation these aspects of the hosting country’s contributions.
