Japan: Enhance Productivity by Boosting Data Ties Between Govt, Industry, Academia
Being able to comprehensively grasp information in real time — ranging from the acceptance of orders to the manufacturing of products to their sale — optimizes production systems. The spread of “smart factories” with such capabilities would dramatically enhance the productivity of the manufacturing industry. To maintain the growth potential of the Japanese economy amid a continued decline in the working population, the public and private sectors should work together to promote smart factories. In a dialogue between the two sectors, at which top government officials and business leaders exchanged opinions, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expressed his intention of having Japan “lead the world in realizing a fourth industrial revolution.” With the utilization of the Internet and big data, the goal is to achieve a fourth industrial revolution, following the first one with the use of steam engines, the second with electricity and the third with computers. The idea will be incorporated in a new growth strategy that will be drawn up next month. It is appropriate to consider the advancement of the manufacturing industry as a pillar of the growth strategy, by giving full play to the characteristics of Japan, which is skillful at manufacturing.

S. Korea: Gov't to Establish National Antiterrorism Committee
South Korea will put in place a pan-government antiterrorism committee next month to deal with possible terrorist attacks targeting the country or its people. The Office for Government Policy Coordination and the National Intelligence Service(NIS) on Friday issued an advance notice of its revisions to the antiterrorism law, which will be activated from May sixth. Under the law that passed the National Assembly last month, the government will establish a prime minister-led national antiterrorism committee, which consists of the heads of 19 related government ministries and agencies. The committee will operate an antiterrorism center where the foreign, defense, land, safety and security, or police chief will set up a response headquarters depending on the nature of terror attacks in the event of an occurrence. The law also calls for providing up to 100 million won, or almost 87-thousand dollars to those who report a potential terrorist plot. The victims of terrorist attacks or their families will also receive financial assistance from the government.
