Introduction to the National Science, Technology and Innovation Policy (NSTIP)

Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) plays an important role as an enabler to drive economic growth, especially in addressing national issues and challenges. Therefore, NSTIP 2021-2030 introduces the concept of Science, Technology, Innovation and Economics (STIE) to show the importance of STI development as a basis in supporting the country's economic growth. To strengthen the role of STIE, the need for coordination, understanding and development in various fields of science and technology is very urgent, as it is able to create and strengthen the foundation, to innovate and apply science and technology, to drive the national economy, and make Malaysia a high-tech country by 2030.

NSTIP 2021-2030 will strengthen the development and use of advanced technology setting the goal to transform industry and society ,from technology users to technology developers by leveraging existing resources. Efforts to achieve this goal are supported by the empowerment of local talent, Research and Development (R&D) in national strategic areas, legislation and regulations that support the development of STIs as well as the upgrading of technology infrastructure including digital technology.

NSTIP 2021-2030 emphasizes STIE as a socio-economic instrument that seeks to enhance the level of knowledge, innovation, wealth generation, inclusion and well-being of society. It will be achieved through the comprehensive application of policy principles as follows:

  1. STIE As A Key Enabler In National Policy And Development.
  2. Government - Industry - Academic - Community Collaboration.
