VN to promote use of internet, telecom
HA NOI — Viet Nam put forward a raft of measures for universalising the global internet society, Ubiquitous Networking, at a two-day conference which ended yesterday in Tokyo.
Vice Minister of Post and Telematics Tran Duc Lai, the head of the Vietnamese delegation, said as Viet Nam was now integrating into the global economy, the country attached great importance to opening up its telecom market and increasing the sector’s competitiveness.
It needed to promote the use of internet and telecom services across the country, especially in rural, remote and isolated areas, he said.
He backed Japanese Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications Taro Aso’s call to countries to build the Ubiquitous Network, an always-on internet network to which everyone can get connected and benefit from Information and Communications Technology (ICT) services.
The concept was in line with the spirit of the 2003 Geneva Declaration of Principles and Action Plan as part of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), whose next meeting has been scheduled for November in Tunis, the Japanese minister said.
During the visit, Lai and his group paid a visit on Aso and Minister of State for Science and Technology Yasufumi Tanahashi. — VNS
