A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between the New South Wales (NSW) Government and NTT Corporation.

The MoU will look to leverage Japanese tech giant NTT’s global capacity as a leader in Digital Transformation and would cement Tech Central as a new Smart City in the center of Sydney.

Stuart Ayres, Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney, said the agreement reaffirmed NSW as a technology hub in Asia-Pacific.

“We’re powering ahead and turbocharging our tech industries through Tech Central, with a focus on areas such as urban development, transportation, cybersecurity, virtual environment, energy and agriculture technology,” said Ayres.

“Through this MoU we would look to support the jobs of tomorrow and develop innovative ecosystems for cybersecurity start-ups and scale-ups at Tech Central, laying the foundation for new industries that drive our economic recovery.”

Jun Sawada, President and CEO of NTT, said the business was focused on making communities and cities more inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

“NTT has a strong collaboration record for smart innovation with many leading cities and states worldwide,” he said. 

“NSW and NTT will promote and accelerate open collaborations and innovations, leveraging smart solutions and ICT platforms that will realize smart buildings, campuses and cities in a secure way.”
