U.S., Japan to cooperate on information technology in Indo-Pacific region

Nikkei took up the launch of the Asian Open RAN Academy in the Philippines, saying that during the inaugural ceremony held remotely on Wednesday, an unnamed USAID official explained that the initiative constitutes parts of the Biden administration’s Indo-Pacific strategy and is aimed at supporting an open and secure Indo-Pacific. The daily said the United States will team up with the GOJ, NTT DoCoMo, Rakuten, and other major Japanese telecom giants to help Indo-Pacific countries roll out safe and secure 5G networks amid China’s growing presence in the field around the world, explaining that President Biden and Prime Minister Kishida had agreed to launch an academy to provide training in Open RAN for people in the region during their summit in Tokyo in May. The paper underscored the importance of greater cooperation between Washington and Tokyo to capture leadership in building resilient supply chains on the telecom front in Southeast Asia.
