"The Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society (TTCS; is appalled by the United Nations Commission on Science and Technology for Development (CSTD) decision on 6 December 2010 which would establish a Working Group on Improvements to the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) comprising only governmental members.

TTCS appeals the UN CSTD to reconsider this decision and instead ensure that this Working Group is appropriately constituted with full and active participation of all stakeholders including governments, private sector and civil society from both developing and developed countries; and involving relevant intergovernmental and international organisations and forums."
