HA NOI (Biz Hub) — Viet Nam hopes to expand co-operation with Japan in three priority areas in information and communications technology (ICT) following a Viet Nam-Japan policy dialogue on ICT in Ha Noi on September 15.

The priority areas are identified as policies and a strategy for the development of 4G/5G networks after the digitalisation of television in Viet Nam, policies on protecting key information systems and the development of infrastructure for the internet of things.
At the dialogue, Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Phan Tam said Viet Nam and Japan became strategic partners in 2009 and bilateral co-operation in ICT has expanded since then.
The co-operation in priority areas could be in the form of expert training, the transfer of technology and technical solutions, he said, adding that the two ministries should coordinate to build mechanisms for regular information exchange.
Japan's Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications Jiro Akama hoped the two sides would exchange information on policy on ICT and other interests.
The two ministries recently signed Memorandum of Understanding on co-operation in wireless radio frequency and postal service. —VNS
