Cyberjaya, 27 February – The Malaysian Technology Strategic Outlook (MTSO) was launched today- a biennial publication that aims to inform and promote awareness on the latest development as well as challenges that are shaping the local and global high technology landscapes.
The launching was performed by Minister in Prime Minister’s Department, who is also the minister in charge of Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT), Dato’ Sri Hajah Nancy Shukri; accompanied by the Science Advisor to the Prime Minister as the Joint-Chair (Government) of MIGHT, Professor Tan Sri Zakri Abdul Hamid, Joint-Chair (Industry) of MIGHT, Tan Sri Datuk Ir. Dr. Ahmad Tajuddin Ali and President and Chief Executive Officer of MIGHT, Datuk Dr Mohd Yusoff Sulaiman.
MTSO is an initiative undertaken by MIGHT, an agency under the Prime Minister’s Office that serves to advance the nation’s competency in high technology towards sustainable development through public-private partnerships.
Industry 4.0 set the scene for this edition of MTSO. With that theme, descriptions of the technologies and platform involved including assessments on technological readiness in the face of rapid changes in high technology were presented. Also included are selected success stories of local and international companies in adopting these technologies, followed by government initiatives addressing these challenges whilst supporting progress.
The overview and in-depth analysis of various topics enable readers of the publication to relate to the current science and technology environment that is progressively transforming human lives around the globe, while serving as a guideline from whence the affected segments of society could chart their future; be it in policy, business or livelihood as a whole.
MTSO contributed as part of input to the Ministry of International Trade and Industry’s National Industry 4.0 Policy Framework complementing the efforts made by the ministry in preparing the local industry with the advent of Industry 4.0.
The event took place at MIGHT’s new office, MIGHT Partnership Hub, as the agency also took that opportunity to celebrate its 25 years anniversary with the guests.
