I would like to appreciate DoST for its initiatives being taken towards transformation of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa economy from resource based to knowledge based. As everyone knows about the changing scenario of global economy i.e. increased dependency on knowledge creation. This would require an adopting of integrated approach to ensure the shift to the knowledge-based economy with DoST as the torch bearer.
The mission of DoST spells out the building of knowledge society as an important milestone in reaching the destination. The initiatives taken by DoST are very essential to the achievement of the goal of knowledge-based economy. This would surely convert the population of the province to human resource.
The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will provide all possible support to Directorate of Science & Technology (DoST) in its endeavors that respond to the needs of the people and achieving the dream of the government of self-sufficiency in every aspect of life. As it is rightly said that while the last century was about 'haves and have not' the current century is about connected and non-connected.
