Ira Magaziner, The White House?s senior Internet advisor, is planning to resign by the end of the year.
According to US reports, Magaziner is expected to leave once the follow-up to his white paper, 'Framework for global electronic commerce', is complete.
Magaziner has led the Clinton administration?s policy efforts to boost ecommerce. This has included the transfer of government control of the Internet?s domain name system to a global non-profit organisation, and negotiations with the European Union to reach an agreement over its new privacy directive.
