KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 16 (Bernama) -- Busan IT Industry Promotion Agency (BIPA), through the ASEAN-ROK ICT Convergence Village, has announced the selection of nine new projects for the 2022 Korea-ASEAN XR Joint Project.

“I hope that the 2022 Korea-ASEAN XR Joint Project becomes a good opportunity for ASEAN and South Korea to start collaborating on various projects. BIPA will continue to discover and support designated projects according to the demands of ASEAN,” said BIPA president and chief executive officer Mun-Seob Jeong.
BIPA plans to finance the nine selected projects totalling about US$2.3 million (US$1 = RM4.465) for its demonstration and commercialisation in the ASEAN market, slated to support the application of XR content to various business fields in the ASEAN region.
