Japan has unveiled plans to bring its first domestic quantum computer online by next March, and to have 30 million users by 2030.

The government-backed Riken Institute is leading the computer's development as the first step in the country's ambition to keep up with the global competition for technological dominance.

Japan's government aims to encourage private companies to leverage quantum cryptographic communications for new services and products.

The government also will commit 10 research sites to quantum computing, with two dedicated to training personnel and supporting research and development, and to promoting joint research by global scientists, respectively.
