Ulaanbaatar, June 17, 2024 /MONTSAME/. Over the past two years, the cultural sector of Mongolia has seen the development and introduction of 10 digital systems as part of the New Revival Policy, according to D. Narantsetseg, Director of the Department of Culture Policy Implementation Coordination of the Ministry of Culture. She highlighted these advancements during the "Asian Innovation and Cultural Forum-2024."

In her opening speech at the forum, Narantsetseg stated, "The Government of Mongolia is focusing on digittalization in line with global trends. To develop the cultural sector as an economically independent sector, the Parliament has recently passed the Law on Supporting Cultural Creative Production. The Government's Resolution No. 314 of 2022 outlines the development of digital content and electronic games as one of the six priority areas of cultural creative production."

At the forum, experts from cultural and technology companies from Mongolia, China, and Japan shared their experiences in promoting cultural values using modern technology.

Li Ming, a deputy researcher at the Artificial Intelligence Internet Research Institute of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), spoke about innovations in the cultural sector. He noted, "Digital technology innovation is significantly growing worldwide. Experts from Singapore, Hong Kong, the UAE, and North America are entering this field. This is my first time attending this innovation conference in Mongolia. I am interested in collaborating with Mongolian universities, research institutions, and businessmen in the fields of digital design and international business.

Human society continuously advances through innovation. Initially, we used telephones, and now we use mobile internet. Later, internet-based payment systems and internet products emerged. We believe the next era will introduce a new generation of the internet centered around value, which is WEB3. This will involve creating digital space content with artificial intelligence and determining the value of this digital content through blockchain.

One thing I noticed about Mongolia is the blue sky. The hotel I am staying at is named "Blue Sky". I saw many things symbolizing the blue sky. This uniqueness is being used for promotion. It could also be a traditional cultural IP of the Mongolian nation. It is necessary to create digital content and transition to a digital technology ecosystem through technology."

Kai Yoshikazu, a board member and CEO of "Rakuza Market Place," shared, "This is my fifth visit to Mongolia. We have been operating Japan's Rakuza Marketplace since 2011. Developed countries emphasize entertainment. However, as Mongolia continues new constructions, there is an expectation to utilize technologies such as NFT, blockchain, and metaverse in the infrastructure and new creations of the younger generation. Our Rakuza company first introduced an NFT trading system in Japan that integrates real and digital aspects. Mongolia is rich in natural resources. As many buildings will be constructed, we want to use the NFT system to bring in cross-border capital flows and gain customers, making it a business."

Tomohiro Okamura, an expert from "Rakuza Market Place," commented, "Compared to other countries, Mongolia seems to value its culture highly. As artificial intelligence and the internet develop, I believe the value of real existing things and historical items will continue to grow, not just digital creations."

The forum, aimed at promoting Mongolia's cultural values, learning from international experiences and technologies, and exploring collaboration opportunities, is planned to be held annually.
