04 October 2011Tweet your views and questions on the key issues that should be addressed at the London Conference using the hashtag #AskFS. The Foreign Secretary will respond via Twitter on Thursday 6 October.
On 1-2 November, at the first conference of its type, the Foreign Office will be bringing together governments, businesses and civil society to talk about how we can best protect and preserve the tremendous opportunities that the internet offers.
In advance of the London Conference on Cyberspace, Foreign Secretary William Hague invites you to tweet your questions and views about the key issues that should be addressed.
Within the space of just over a decade cyberspace has revolutionised how many of us live and work. Access has grown from 16 million internet users in 1995 to nearly 2 billion today, more than half of whom are in developing countries.
Against the backdrop of the rapid development of a globally networked world, the conference will concentrate on five themes including economic growth and development, social benefits, cyber crime, safe and reliable access and international security.
You can tweet your questions using the hashtag #AskFS and the Foreign Secretary will answer them from his Twitter account, @WilliamJHague from 12pm UK time on Thursday. You will be able to follow the event live below.
