Proposal for Asia Internet Plaza
As a part of the Internet 1996 World Expo
, getting support from
Tokyo Internet Co.,
this project names Asia Internet Plaza opened from April 14th.
The principle of AIP
Asia region often is said as world economy developing center; but on
the field of Information service, especially the Internet information
service, development is so late. When we work for developing the
World Internet industry, as an Asian what we should do first is
power-up the Asian Internet.
Purposes of AIP
In detail, we are starting and fasting up about 30 developing
countries' Internet in Asia region, work with friends from these
countries, making their own homepages, datebanks in the Internet World
Expo server. We hope whole side of the world--people who have
interests to these countries would be enable to get the enough
information from homepages and use them as communities, exchange ideas
and messages conveniently.
- Set up an Information Search System on the field of Asia
Information, supply a kind interface to various Asian cultures. It
should be very convenient to the various cultures, histories,
languages, thoughts in the Asia Region..
- E.X. We got support from Sri Lanka Embassy in Tokyo, made the National
Information section, supplying colorful culture on WWW. We are planning to
making the environment can use the local language Sinhala and Tamil on WWW.
- Set up an Asia Forum, supplying an discussion place on the topics
of our culture, history, society. In the long history of Asia, many
misunderstanding and tragedy came from less-communication. Now, since
we have the Internet, exciting communication tool, we have the opportunity
to make the flat communication among our neighbors. Especially we can
communicate in all the ways and levels, not be controlled by some
special organizations. Spontaneously communities, citizen
conference...: through these various kinds of communication, we can
find some new way to understand ourselves and our neighbors.
- Helping the developing countries to informationalize their
societies. Because the Internet opened a new age of the Information
Superhighway, all the countries have same start-line to develop their
countries in the new world environment. But, by various domestic
reasons some countries cannot enter the new age timely and lose a lot
chance to develop. What we can do there is help them to be a member of
informationalized world by using our know-how to make some new
opportunities and cooperate together. Therefore, people of the
Internet or telecommunication specialists, governmential officers or
people who just have interests to Asia and Asian countries, please
contact us, give us information/your knowledge, and work with us: we
are eager to develop Asian culture in the Internet, and make the Asia
as one leading region of new informationalized age.
As a part of IWE, as a pilot project of infomationalized age, working
with lots associations and friends, AIP are making the new
opportunities to us--this is a challenge to the new age.
