Quantum Leap: Republic of Korea, U.S. and Japan Launch
Cutting-edge Quantum Collaboration
We, Director of National Security Hojin Chang, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, and National Security Advisor Akiba Takeo, congratulate Seoul National University, the University of Chicago, and the University of Tokyo for signing a new trilateral quantum partnership that will train a quantum workforce and strengthen our collective competitiveness in the new global economy.
At Camp David, we committed to demonstrate to the people of our respective nations the tangible benefits of trilateral cooperation. Today’s signing is one more step towards fulfilling this collective commitment. It also follows the December signing of a Trilateral Framework encouraging scientific cooperation among our national laboratories. United by common purpose, we will harness the power of our leading academic institutions to light a new way forward.
The Republic of Korea, the United States, and Japan are global leaders in research and development investment. Innovative partnerships like this one position our three countries to embrace a transitional moment where cutting-edge scientific research and technology are yielding new industries and modernizing old ones. We wish these universities great success in this new quantum endeavor.
