Kazakhstan-South Korea: IT cooperation
Kazakhstan and South Korea intend to establish ties in the field of information and communication technologies. Representatives of the Kazakh Embassy came to such an agreement during a visit to the South Korean National IT Industry Promotion Agency. The state body founded in 2009 cooperates with the US, Europe, Southeast Asia and Africa in the field of creation and promotion of Internet services, cloud technologies, 3D modeling and digital content. The diplomats told about the implementation of the program "Digital Kazakhstan" and invited Korean companies to cooperate. The parties will hold negotiations on this topic in the near future.
LEE YONG HWANG, STAFF, NATIONAL IT INDUSTRY PROMOTION AGENCY:
- I know that the Digital Kazakhstan program is aimed at expanding the information network and providing electronic services, and we hope for cooperation in this area. South Korea will begin providing the world’s first 5G service starting from the beginning of this year. We are ready to share our experience in the development of search and short message services with Kazakhstan.
