SETTING THE STAGE FOR A NATION OF INNOVATORS
Today, our country needs to embrace a path of innovative technological transformation. In this context the MRIC supported by the Ministry of ICTI is learning forward to catalyse growth and innovation across all sectors.
“There is no better time to look for creative ways to solve problems for our country with the launch of the National Innovation Campaign and drive the transformations required for our country, our people, our enterprises to emerge stronger from this ordeal.
The potential impact of innovation in supporting social and economic development is dependent on the engagement and maturity of the innovation ecosystems. Innovation challenges have the aim of promoting inclusive development and leveraging local knowledge, solutions and resources.
We all have a role to play in facilitating an enabling environment for innovators to thrive. We have the firm belief that in the global context in which we evolve these days, innovation is central to responding to the multitude of challenges that our country faces. Above all we want to instill a culture of innovation not only within academia and industry but also within the community.”
The Honourable Deepak Balgobin
Minister of Information Technology, Communication and Innovation
