Digital skills and education, the importance of public-private partnerships, a thriving tech startup environment and a focus on cybersecurity – key elements on display in the National Pavilions from around the world exhibiting online at ITU Virtual Digital World 2020.
Digital innovation is part of the national DNA in Finland – the country which brought us SMS, 5G and the Linux operating system. Finland’s success is built on active public-private sector cooperation, excellent education and digital capacity development, and a dynamic startup scene. With the highest number of digital startups per capita in the world and a culture of early adoption, it is a natural testbed for innovative global solutions.
Some of those on display in the virtual exhibition include Oivan’s network management system and cybersecurity solution; the PriveTX multi-purpose, high-security mobile device for critical voice, messaging and file transfer; and the Satel XPRS wireless router, a market leader in spectrally-efficient mission-critical applications. And Finnish expertise is showcased in Omnitele’s future technology studies on 5G network evolution trends, spectrum analysis and data-driven predictive diagnoses.
Cuba’s digital sector is focused on software development, including products, services and applications for industry, business and society. The National Computerization Program is a central pillar in the country’s economic and social development strategy, with a strong emphasis on highly-skilled technical education and human capital. Cuba’s virtual pavilion highlights talent in the biotechnology industry and technical cooperation through ETI, health informatics specialists Oftel, software development company Desoft, and GEIC, a highly-experienced communications company committed to ensuring access to the information society is a universal right.
Connected Cambodia is the motto of the Ministry of Post, Telecommunications and ICT sectors in the Kingdom of Cambodia – and its vision is effective network infrastructure and accessible services to stimulate socio-economic development in the country, region and world.
