Japan to draw up roadmap for rural digitalization

Japan’s Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry plans to draw up a roadmap for an initiative that promises to bring digital technologies to rural areas.

Minister Hagiuda laid out the initiative at a meeting of experts on Thursday. He said Japan lags behind other industrialized economies in terms of digitalization and that drastic reform is necessary.

The roadmap will specify long-term schedules and support measures. These will be needed to build infrastructure for 5G telecommunications and autonomous vehicles as well as power grids for renewable energy.
