Palau joined The Clean Network , an initiative to protect citizens’ privacy and companies’ sensitive information on 5G mobile networks.
United States Ambassador to Palau John Hennessey-Niland in a signing event of the second submarine cable, said that Palau’s commitment to the Clean Network also will secure the technology data system.
“This will provide a trusted foundation for countries to protect Palau’s citizens’ personal data, their businesses’ intellectual property, and their own national security. The U.S. is pleased that Palau will join the rapidly growing coalition of the world’s top countries,” he said in his remarks.
He added that Palau will be joining the growing coalition of the world’s top countries, telecommunications providers, and high-tech companies in the Clean Network.
“Becoming a member of the Clean Network will accelerate high quality foreign direct investment into Palau and allow global industry leaders to open and or expand operations in Palau and enable further scientific collaboration.”
President Tommy Remengesau meanwhile said Palau is committed to build a clean domestic network and be part of the International Clean Network.
“We are fortunate to have like-minded national partners around the world. More than 50 countries, including Australia, Japan and the United States, have already committed to the Clean Network concept and Palau is proud to join the coalition.”
