REUTERS/Andrew Kelly/File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsTOKYO, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Goldman Sachs' Japan president Masanori Mochida has decided to retire at the end of the year after more than 38 years at the investment bank, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters. The internal memo dated Sunday from Goldman (GS.N) CEO David Solomon said Mochida will become a senior director, without mentioning who would succeed his role as president. He became co-branch manager of Goldman Sachs Japan in 1999. "Masa has served as an invaluable advisor to our most important clients across Japan and beyond on countless transactions, helping them advance their strategic objectives with Goldman Sachs at their side," the memo said.

If your business occupies at least 500,000 square feet, 5G could provide the right connectivity. He added: "You have to put close to 6,000 to 7,000 WiFi access points to cover 1 million square feet. In fact, Ahmed said that a loose rule for 5G was: Large spaces of about half a million square feet or more benefit. Consider your security needsIf your business deals with sensitive data or requires high levels of security, 5G can be a wise choice. And 5G security is significantly more robust than anything WiFi has today because of that."

Courtesy of Aeva Inc/Handout via REUTERS/ File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsNov 8 (Reuters) - Aeva Technologies (AEVA.N) on Wednesday said it has inked a deal to supply May Mobility with a key sensor for its self-driving shuttles. Silicon Valley-based Aeva has developed what is known as a lidar sensor that helps self-driving vehicles gain a detailed, long-range view of the road. Under the deal, Aeva will supply multiple sensors for "thousands" of May Mobility vehicles through 2028, Aeva Chief Executive Officer Soroush Salehian told Reuters in an interview. He said May Mobility will need to rewrite some of its software to use the Aeva sensors but that they will eventually improve the long-range sensing of its shuttles, which are based on Toyota Sienna minivans.

REUTERS/David 'Dee' Delgado/File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsTOKYO, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Japan's Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) (9432.T) plans to test driverless vehicle technology with Toyota Motor (7203.T) and invest in a U.S. startup developing self-driving systems, a spokesperson for the telecommunications firm said on Monday. The Nikkei newspaper first reported on Monday that NTT will invest in May Mobility, adding that both NTT and Toyota would jointly develop vehicles. Both the NTT spokesperson and a Toyota spokesperson said they had no plans for joint development. Cruise late that month suspended all driverless vehicle operations in the United States following an accident that led California regulators to order the company to remove its driverless cars from state roads.

In remote locations, 5G-powered tech is helping farmers produce crops with the support of experts. Smart farming was introduced into Japanese agriculture in 2020 by NTT AgriTechnology in Chōfu City, Tokyo, for a three-year project. This helps farmers monitor crops for disease and create a harvesting timeline while navigating conditions that can change daily. The next steps for 5G farming involve broadening the scale of these projects so that farmers can monitor more fields at a time, Ahmed and Masakuza said. To do that, companies and local governments will need to continue investing in private, local 5G networks, they added.

Evan Vucci/Pool via REUTERS Acquire Licensing RightsBENGALURU, Oct 19 (Reuters Breakingviews) - India and Japan are edging closer. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Prime Minister Fumio Kishida's governments form part of the so-called Quad security grouping with the United States and Australia to counter Chinese expansionism in Asia. Now the two countries are setting up an investment fund together. That’s delivering on a pledge by Kishida to invest 5 trillion yen, or some $42 billion, into India over the next five years.

When COVID forced kids into remote school, the city of Las Vegas learned many couldn't get online. A grant helped officials build a private 5G network that connected hundreds of students for free. "So we successfully hooked up several hundred students onto our private 5G network, which gave them connectivity from their homes through the city's network to their schools." This would be supplemented by commercial carriers such as Verizon and AT&T in areas where the private network wouldn't reach. Looking ahead, Ahmed sees many use cases for a private 5G network and expects them to grow in popularity as cities harness the power of artificial intelligence to create safer environments.

Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi told reporters that Japan would take "necessary action (on China's aquatic product ban) under various routes including the WTO framework". Filing a WTO complaint might become an option if protesting to China through diplomatic routes is ineffective, Economic Security Minister Sanae Takaichi said separately. Japan's National Police Agency has received 225 reports of harassment calls to date, Jiji News reported, and the government said it was seeking help from telecommunications companies to block the calls. NTT and other phone companies including KDDI (9433.T) and SoftBank Corp (9434.T) are discussing measures following the government's request. "It is extremely regrettable and concerning about the large number of harassment calls that have likely come from China," Trade Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura said during a news conference.

REUTERS/Kim Kyung-HoonTOKYO, July 26 (Reuters) - On a recent vacation in Tokyo, Takumi Yamamoto opted for a special lunch of cricket curry and silkworm sashimi, washed down with a water bug cider. In particular, the water bug cider was quite refreshing and delicious, like a green apple." While some consumers think eating insects is just gross, Japan has a rich culinary history of insects as food. The delicate "sashimi" is the left-over casing of silkworms, and the cider is infused with water bug extract and topped with a whole insect, said to taste like shrimp.

TOKYO, Nov 11 (Reuters) - Japan said on Friday it will invest up to 70 billion yen ($500 million) in a new semiconductor company led by tech firms including Sony Group Corp (6758.T) and NEC Corp (6701.T) as it rushes to re-establish itself as a lead maker of advanced chips. The new chip company will be named Rapidus and aims to begin making chips in the second half of the decade, he added. Japan is also concerned that China may attempt to take control of Taiwan, the global hub for advanced chip production. In July Japan also offered a 93 billion yen subsidy to help memory chip makers Kioxia Corp and Western Digital Corp (WDC.O) expand output in Japan. In September it pledged to give U.S. chipmaker Micron Technology (MU.O) $46.5 billion yen so it can add production capacity at its plant in Hiroshima.

Tech stocks generally carry more risk than other stocks, but they also promise significantly more growth. Throughout much of the 21st century's historic bull market, tech stocks have been at the forefront of the rise, with the biggest tech stocks all outperforming the S&P 500 over the past five and 10 years. There's a fundamental reason why tech stocks tend to attract more investor demand than other kinds of equities. This has added to optimism that tech stocks, in particular stocks which have already seen big gains, will still be a safer longer-term bet," Streeter says. If an investor wants the highest possible appreciation, they would do well to devote a segment of their holdings to tech stocks.
