Brazilian Telecom Minister to Discuss 5G in China and Japan


The Brazilian minister of Telecommunications, Fábio Faria, will visit China, Sweden, Finland, South Korea and Japan to discuss 5G technology, between February 3 and 13.

According to a statement from the Brazilian Ministry of Telecommunications, Faria will talk to executives of companies that offer infrastructure for the technology.

Sweden is home to Ericsson, one of Europe’s leading suppliers of telecommunications equipment and biggest rival to China’s Huawei. China is also home to ZTE. In Finland, the big company in the sector is Nokia. South Korea is home to Samsung, and Japan´s 5G top contender is NTT Docomo.

The 5G auction in Brazil will not restrict specific companies from participating, as the previous United States Government wanted to be done with Huawei, Communications Minister Fábio Faria said.
