Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications to Organize Internet Summit Events

Date Posted: 2000-01-28

The Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications based in Tokyo is presently examining a good way for it to participate directly in the G8-Summit-related activities, while getting all its users and families invloved. Authorities there have announced plans to sponsor events on the Internet that will mostly target children.

The main objectives of the events being planned by the Ministry are to animate the pre-Summit atmosphere; to promote Okinawa in the eyes of the world through children; and to make a contribution to human resources management in the sector of information technology, which is one of the most favored points of Okinawa Promotion Policy.

“Internet and Education Symposium 2000 in Okinawa” will be organized at the end of May, permitting discussions over the practical usage of Internet in schools. The possibilities and problems encountered in that domain will be a main subject of the Internet forum.

“Multimedia Camp 2000 in Okinawa” will be conduct from March 27th through 29th at Ikoi-no-Mura Okinawa, located in Nago City. Through this event, the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications intends to create a forum for children to become more friendly and intimate with high-tech multimedia equipment. Since January 1st of this year, another event codenamed “Online Relay Event” has been ongoing, and will continue in two phases: “21st Century Countdown Message Relay” and “World Children’s Story Telling Relay,” which will take over from June. Both of them invite children all over the world to join in. Other than the events cited above, the Ministry will also host “Internet Live Relay from Okinawa” from May 18th, for about 1 week, and “International Cultural Exchange Program” earlier in April.
