G-20 Ministers See Potential in Trusted Data Flow

G-20 Ministers See Potential in Trusted Data Flow

   Tsukuba, Ibaraki Pref., June 8 (Jiji Press)--Group of 20 trade and digital economy ministers adopted on Saturday a joint statement that trusted, free data distribution, pushed by Japan, will "harness the opportunities of the digital economy."
   On the first day of their two-day meeting through Sunday in Tsukuba, Ibaraki Prefecture, eastern Japan, the G-20 ministers also confirmed the importance of taking a "human-centered" approach in the development of artificial intelligence.
   Japan hopes the ministerial statement will be reflected in the declaration of the G-20 summit in the western city of Osaka in late June.
   "We shared the recognition that securing trust will promote data flow, which in turn will lead to development and growth of the global economy," Japanese industry minister Hiroshige Seko, who chaired the meeting, told a press conference on Saturday night.
   The statement said, "Cross-border flow of data, information, ideas and knowledge generates higher productivity, greater innovation, and improved sustainable development."
