Dr Scott Steedman said, “The new agreement recognizes the critical role that standards play in fuelling the development of new mobile solutions and the convergence of telecommunications with electrotechnical technologies. We look forward to collaborating with TTA and leading industry experts over the next two years to develop and grow international best practices.”
Mr Choi Young Hae added, “During the outbreak of COVID-19, ICT has become increasingly important in our daily life. The signing of this MoU is highly encouraging and meaningful, as we will help each other to successfully deliver future challenges in ICT convergence such as Smart Cities and AI. Together we can lead international data transformation and data inclusiveness.”
The agreement will be in place until 2022.
