Japanese electronics giant NEC may test some of its technology in Wellington under a collaboration agreement signed in Tokyo by mayor Celia Wade-Brown.

NEC's technology could help cities operate infrastructure and transport networks efficiently and enhance customer service, she said.

Wade-Brown, in Japan and China with a Wellington business delegation, said the agreement fitted with the council's "smart capital" strategy.

She also visited Tokyo's Haneda Airport to see how a runway had been extended into Tokyo Bay. Land reclamation combined with extensive use of piling were of great interest considering there were plans for an extension of Wellington Airport's own runway, she said.
