VP Kalla Urges OIC Members To Better Implement Technology

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Indonesian Vice President Jusuf Kalla hopes that members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will be better in implementing sciences and technology, in order to avoid being lagged behind other countries.

"In Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), we have so many conventions, discussions, and seminars. We want them to be implemented one by one," he stated in Astana on Saturday during the Organization of Islamic Summits Conference on Sunday.

Islamic countries, including Kazakhstan, Turkey, Iran, and Pakistan, have quite a good and advanced technology. Hence, as OIC members, with large population, they must be able to implement the technology, he noted.

Indonesia is one of the countries to participate in the first ever OIC Summit on sciences and technology held in Astana, Kazakhstan.

At the Summit, held from Sept 10 to 11, Indonesia will offer several kinds of technology related to food and water management.

At the OIC ministerial meeting, Indonesia also raised the importance of OIC developing technology in the maritime field.

The Indonesian delegation to the OIC Summit also includes five rectors and a dean. They are expected to witness the developments of sciences and technology in Islamic countries at an international expo 2017 on future energy.
