Colombia provided an update regarding the letter sent by the ACTO secretariat on 5 September 2018 in which the 8-countries Organization expressed its concerns on a possible assignment of the domain to the corporation Amazon Inc. without taking into consideration the cultural, economic, social and environmental interests of a sensitive region as is the Amazonia, while reiterating that ACTO countries have the right to participate in the governance of the domain name ".AMAZON"; including the participation in the establishment of public policies. A decision without proper consent in a multi-stakeholder approach framework, would be considered disadvantageous, and far from their interest over the Amazonian region. Colombia also informed of a note of concern addressed to the ICANN CEO by the Foreign Affairs Ministry and the ITs Minister in which the Government expressed its concern regarding a possible .amazon delegation without consent by the ACTO members.Read the full Barcelona communiqué.
