He also serves on ICANN President’s Advisory Committee on International Domain Names, by special invitation from the ICANN President /CEO at the formation of this ICANN President Advisory Committee in 2005.
Fattal has also been very active locally and internationally to empower the non- English speaking world over the Internet since the late 1990s, and has led on Multilingualizing the English Internet at United Nations Processes, at ICANN and many others. As MINC Chairman, he was directly involved in the UN World Summit on Information Society (WSIS) 2001-2005 and was instrumental in securing the clause on “Multilingualism of the Net” in the UN Geneva WSIS Declaration of Principles of December 2003.

The fruits of all these efforts have today started springing up thru local language Domain Names also known as IDNs in many Country Codes around the world in Cyrillic for Russia, Indian and Chinese languages as well as in Arabic in many Arab countries like Egypt, UAE, Tunisia, Jordan and others, and very soon under ICANN’s New gTLDs program with IDN gTLDs where the vast majority of next multi-billion internet users will come from.
