'Silk Road' - no deal on 5G

Di Maio set up certification centre

(ANSA) - Rome, March 11 - The memorandum of understanding between Italy and China on the Belt and Road Initiative, dubbed 'the new Silk Road', does not include any deal on 5G technology, the industry ministry said Monday.
    In February, it said, Industry Minister Luigi Di Maio set up a national evaluation and certification centre to assess "the conditions of safety and security and the absence of vulnerabilities in products, equipment, and systems destined to be used for the functioning of networks, services and strategic infrastructures, as well as all other operators for which a national interest exists".
