Canada's computer expertise was
demonstrated internationally when Department employees at a conference in
Tokyo transferred files between computer systems located around the world.
During the live demonstration, employees transferred files containing
a full-colour rendition of the Canadian flag and a computer image of
Communications Minister Marcel Masse between
laboratories in Ottawa, Tokyo and Seoul.
The success of the demonstration was attributed to Hua
Chang, a computer programmer in the Department's Systems Interconnection

Understanding for technical co-operation was recently signed between the Department and Japan's Ministry of

Canadian and Japanese efforts towards achieving compatibility
in computer systems interworking.
