Japan, China to collaborate on 4G mobile
Updated: 2005-08-30 16:56

Japan and China have signed an agreement to develop and standardize 4G mobile phones, according to Japan's Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC).

The agreement was signed by Feng Jichun, director-general of the China's Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), and Kazuhiro Suda, director-general of the Japanese agency. Though MIC has collaborated previously with China's Ministry of Information Industry, this is the first time the two agencies have worked together. MOST has jurisdiction over new technology development in China, according to a Japanese official.

4G standardization efforts are expected to increase after 2007. In anticipation, Japan and China intend to collaborate, said the Japanese official.

The memorandum of understanding also includes an annual information exchange meeting and an annual forum bringing together industrial, academic and government sectors from Japan, China and South Korea.
