Minister Chin determined to advance IT Korea's ubiquitous society
July 8, 2005
Information and Communication Minister Chin Dae-je said on June 22 that his ministry will advance the arrival of IT Korea's new version of ubiquitous society through wireless broadband (WiBro), digital multimedia broadcasting (DMB) and radio frequency identification (RFID) services.
Minister Chin made the remarks in a special lecture at the U-Korea Vision 2005 Conference held at Seoul's COEX as he elaborated on demonstration projects capitalizing on RFID, saying profit models will be explored through the pilot projects.
He said by seeking the earlier commercialization of WiBro and land-based DMB, Korean companies will be encouraged to foray into China and Germany, while trying to ease the vicious cycle accompanied by informatization.
Meanwhile, Minister Chin invited some 30 foreign journalists based in Korea to lunch at COEX and briefed them on Korea's IT development strategy in general.
He told the foreign correspondents that an early commercializing of WiBro and DMB has been promoted with an eye to expanding business opportunities abroad.
