India and China have announced a deal to develop a joint technology platform, called CyberBridge, to fight cybercrime, as well as improve the cooperation between the two countries.

    A statement released on Wednesday by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry said the initiative will be launched in the coming months.

    The joint platform will include a framework for joint research and development, sharing of research and data and interoperability between the Indian and Chinese enterprises, the statement said.

    The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has also announced plans to develop India’s first “supercomputer”, which will help researchers improve their algorithms.

    India is among the world’s fastest-growing economies.

    Its economy is estimated to be worth about $2 trillion, or 1.7 percent of global GDP, according to the World Bank.
