Is GIGA the new name of the NETmundial Initiative Coordinating Council or

> SAO PAULO, June 30 (Xinhua) -- Jack Ma, founder of China's ecommerce giant
> Alibaba, was elected co-chairman of the Global Internet Governance Alliance
> (GIGA) at the first general meeting of GIGA council held here Tuesday.
> "This election signifies trust in China's Internet, and how China governs
> its Internet," said Ma.
> The meeting was set to discuss key issues related to international
> cooperation on Internet governance while highlighting China's role.
> Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff had called for a just and equal global
> Internet environment and regarded China as the "key factor to the success
> of global Internet governance," said Fadi Chehade, president of the
> Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
> Rousseff had suggested he find Chinese partners for cooperation, Chehade
> said.
> To establish a multiple-stakeholder platform, Chehade said that dialogues
> among different partners should be improved, the platform should be
> transparent and just, and all stakeholders should be able to equally
> participate in global Internet governance.
> GIGA is co-sponsored by ICANN, the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee
> and the World Economic Forum to provide a platform for the discussion of
> Internet governance solutions.
