KOTA KINABALU: Information and communication technology (ICT) is vital in the current globalized era, with countries that neglect the sector is inevitably left behind in term of development, said the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) Datuk Madius Tangau.
He also said the government through his ministry has put top priority for science and technology as an important element to drive the nation’s economy forward.
“In this matter, all parties including other ministries, agencies, and non-government bodies across the country need to use science and technology in every policy, whether it has been made or not,” he said.
He was speaking during officiating the Edu Media Mobile Apps at UMS, today.
Madius also calls for those in the research sector and other communities, especially the people of Sabah to get involve with the innovation industry.
“Those who have brilliant ideas can come forward and share their ideas with the public,” he said. –SayangSabah
