Views: 178


The Japan Government has adopted open source policy under which government ministries and agencies will solicit bids from software vendors whose products support internationally recognized open standards.

The government will give preference to procuring products, which adhere to open standards and easily interoperate with other software with use of the new interoperability framework. The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has designed the new guidelines, while other ministries and agencies will deploy the guidelines. The interoperability framework also suggests that the guidelines would also be useful for private industry.
