Dear Jean-Jacques, all

Like a person who attended this meeting remotely, which means with 
limited functionality for participation, I found last part very 
interesting and would like to talk further about strategy.
@JJ - ICANN's**engagement strategy - can we outline and explain (in 
short) what is behind this, so everybody can understand. In other words 
- what it means?
Can You give us some examples from other regions?
@all - what do You think about this idea? In the region, we have several 
countries with signed agreement between government and ICANN. We have 
others with domain registries and registrars who are already involved 
(more-or-less) in ICANN.
Do we need this kind of strategy? If we need this, what kind of strategy 
and what do You expect from the strategy?
You can see reaction in favor (as I understood), from Oksana and 
Mirjana, with some suggestions.
