Last night at the Conferment of Fellowship of the Academy of Sciences Malaysia and Top Research Scientists Malaysia 2014, I met a passionate group of young research scientists. I spoke on Malaysia’s need to work towards being one of the top 10 countries in the global competitiveness index and global innovation index. In my speech, I also reiterated Malaysia’s need to intensify the application of science and technology for industrial development and the people’s well-being. Furthermore, the Government is also committed to assist Malaysian science researchers, whether in the government research institutes and the public universities, in realising the targets set. With the world and Malaysia today impacted by numerous diseases and disasters, both new and recurring, I call on the scientific community via the Academy of Sciences Malaysia to leadstudies on the issues to find lasting solutions grounded in science and technology.
