A warm welcome to everyone at ICANN54 both in Dublin and those participating remotely.

I hope the style and progressiveness of this city permeates every session here at this historic meeting.

I want to urge everyone to make this meeting one of progress, where we coalesce and bring the spirit of openness, of listening and of working together to achieve great things. I have no doubt we will all rise to this important occasion.

Welcome to ICANN54!
