Vietnam, Japan boost IT cooperation

The Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) held a seminar on wireless network infrastructure in coordination with Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communication on January 16 in Hanoi.

Speaking at the event, Deputy Minister of Le Nam Thang noted that the two countries have stepped up its cooperation on the information technology (IT), especially the broadband wireless technology (BWT). 

BWT laid the foundation for the development of information infrastructure, social services and economic development, he added. 

Thang also noted that the rapid BWT development has recently contributed effectively to addressing many global challenges, such as climate change, environmental pollution and natural disasters. 

The two countries have continuously cooperated to develop the broadband infrastructure in Vietnam from urban to rural remote areas, he stressed. 

At the workshop, Japanese IT companies such as NTT, NEC, FUJITSU and HITACHI shared their experiences related to the wireless technology with their Vietnamese partners.
