North Korea Announces That Top Industries Getting Access To Information Technology

» by in: North Korea

I agree with Adam Cathcart that it is not a positive sign for the North Koreans when their top industries are just getting access to IT:

Many Units Get Access to IT

Pyongyang, November 13 (KCNA) — A lot of information technologies have been applied to economic sectors in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The 23rd national software contest and exhibition, held some days ago, presented software necessarily needed in various fields. Among them were IPTV broadcasting software, translation program and IC card settlement program.

Many units have put their operation on a computer basis.

The Ministry of Agriculture finished setting up networks with provincial rural economy committees.

The Sunchon Chemical Complex put production and management on a basis of combined automation system.

The same is true for the Taehongdan Potato Processing Factory, the Kanggye Koryo Medicine Processing Factory and others.

Meanwhile, a number of applications for new software are filed by other countries.  [KCNA]

    They thought they were living under a dictatorship before…now they will submit to the overlords of IT.

    Other countries are outsourcing their IT development to North Korea? Is that what this means?
    “Meanwhile, a number of applications for new software are filed by other countries.”
