Invest in IR4.0 tech to reduce dependence on migrant labour. [Newspaper] (2021)


JULY 1 marked a milestone for Malaysia's scientific and technological development. The crucial role of science in powering the economy is being recognised increasingly as ministers heading the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry and Economic Planning Unit jointly launched the nation's Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4.0) blueprint. It provides details of the country's implementation of technologies that will shape future businesses. IR4.0 sees the world striving to achieve sustainable development. A few years ago, the International Trade and Industry Ministry launched the Industry Forward plan, based on IR4.0, which focuses more on the manufacturing sector. IR4.0 has implications for all of society. People need to embrace IR4.0 if the country is to benefit from it fully. In urban areas sustainable cities are only viable through IR4.0 adoption.
