世界のなかの日本としてのIT政策と技術



Current social infrastructure has employed IT technology, and the technology plays important roles in our daily life. The objectives of the government measure on IT used to be "deploying" IT technology and environment, and then it has been changed to "utilizing" the technology in the real life such as: education, medication, and improving quality of life in the global environment. Japan and Asian countries are characteristic countries in terms of IT environment because cutting edge technologies are available in those countries. However, the policy and processes in those countries are sometimes far behind the other countries. In the current environment, Japan has an opportunity to show a role model to solve the problems and contribute for the other countries. Also, studying and understanding the processes in other countries provides important factors for our country's development.
