Japan to help ASEAN boost broadband network, cyber security | HispanicBusiness.com

Government ministers from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations said Friday they have endorsed Japan's proposal for cooperation to ensure a "smart" information and communications technology network in the region.

The telecommunications and information technology ministers, in a joint statement, agreed to cooperate with Japan to realize the "ASEAN Smart Network Initiative," which Tokyo proposed in 2011 to support the 10-member ASEAN's goal to develop its ICT capacity and enhance regional "connectivity."

The ministers' two-day meeting here also involved separate meetings on ICT-related issues with ministers or deputies from Japan, China and South Korea.

Masahiro Yoshizaki, Japan's vice minister for policy coordination in the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communication, said that through Japan's initiative, it will assist ASEAN countries to proliferate high-speed broadband in the region.

Japan will also share best practices in telecommunications and digital infrastructure development with ASEAN to overcome network traffic bottlenecks, including those that could affect internet security, he said.

"Cyber attacks will find out the weak points," he said. "Our task is to...address this issue as a group to eliminate this possibility," Yoshizaki said.

Taiwan Skyscraper's Facade Covered in Thousands of Wind Turbines

Taiwan Skyscraper's Facade Covered in Thousands of Wind Turbines | ASEAN | Scoop.it

Beijing-based Decode Urbanism Office has designed a 1,150 foot (350m) skyscraper located in Taichung City, Taiwan, to house the city’s Department of Urban Development, commercial concerns, museums, retail areas and exhibitions spaces. 


The building’s design was inspired by the plum blossom, the national flower of China and Taiwan. The building’s twisting and turning structure is intended to evoke the experience of plum blossoms bursting into bloom.

To do so, the facade has thousands of small diamond shaped wind turbines, which produce enough energy to power the building. These wind generators are set into the facade grid, oscillating as wind skirts the building.

new and innovative way to produce power for an entire building. The source of energy is embedded in the architecture. - Madi Chaput

JMS1kiddz's curator insight, October 16, 2013 7:17 AM

Yet again another environmentally friendly design. This building has been designed to generate its own energy and power LED lighting throughout the building. This is done through the power of wind turbines which the building is completely surrounded by. It is becoming the newest trend in design to create buildings and structures that are helpful to the environment.
