About Asia Internet Coalition

The Asia Internet Coalition (AIC) is an industry association made up of leading internet and technology companies. The AIC seeks to promote the understanding and resolution of Internet policy issues in the Asia Pacific region.

Google and eBay joined as founding members in 2010, followed shortly thereafter by Yahoo. In 2013 Facebook joined as a member, followed by LinkedIn and Salesforce. Apple joined in 2014, and Twitter in 2015. In 2016, Expedia, LINE, PayPal and Rakuten/Viber joined as AIC’s newest members.

AIC also has a “Friends of AIC” scheme where other industry groups and independent Internet-based companies can partner with us as a growing industry voice in the digital economy of Asia Pacific.
