Jordan attends first OIC summit on science, technology

He was of the view that it would be possible to focus on higher education and research in emerging areas of science and technology once there is a solid foundation of educated, skilled and healthy manpower. "Because the development of science and technology is very important for us and in this regard, we must continue to develop fruitful cooperation with Western countries", he added, as reported by Kazinform.

The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques stressed that the OIC Summit on Science and Technology held in Astana emanates from the values of Islam and the principles of the OIC Charter which emphasize the importance of science and knowledge as a fundamental element for the achievement of sustainable social and economic development.

Addressing the first summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation on science and technology in the capital of Kazakhstan, the Pakistani leader urged the Muslim countries to work collectively in order to meet the challenges of modern times.

During the meeting, the OIC Programme of Action for Science, Technology and Innovation was adopted by the participating ministers in preparation for its adoption in the summit.
