Japan Wants To Invest In Zimbabwe´s Cyber Security
Japan is willing to invest in the cyber security sector in Zimbabwe to protect citizens and tourists from different countries.
Speaking at a meeting with Information Communication Technology and Cyber Security minister Supa Mandiwanzira in Harare, Japanese ambassador to Zimbabwe, Toshiyuki Iwado promised to enhance co-operation between the two countries.
“The country’s direct message to us is just of welcome. As ambassador, I will try my best to promote co-operation in different fields and in this particular case, in ICT,” Iwado said.
“We exchanged some views on how we can promote cyber security and the safety of the people in this country and we were impressed by the response we got. There are still 20 000 tourists coming to Zimbabwe each year, so it’s about security for the people of this country and Japanese tourists, but on tourists generally.”
The Japanese envoy was accompanied by one of the leading companies in the sector, NEC, represented by its deputy managing director for Africa, Kentaro Maekawa.
