31st July 2018 marks a momentous comeback when MIGHT welcomed nation’s beloved YAB Tun Dr Mahathir as our Patron. MIGHT, a brain child of YAB Tun, was first established on 22nd February 1993 under the auspices of the Prime Minister’s Department as a think-tank to develop the high technology industry through partnerships between the public and private sector. The return of YAB Tun, MIGHT’s first Patron from 1993 to 2003 is like welcoming home the long awaited father.
It was a great feeling to be back in business under the leadership of YAB Tun and thus far we have organised two successful MIGHT Consultation series. MIGHT CONSULTATION is a significant platform for the Prime Minister to regularly convey his aspirations and mandates to the stakeholders especially the industry players. Various issues were discussed pertaining to the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Sustainable Development Goals. YAB Tun encouraged more industry driven research-based activities, where MIGHT is tasked to develop a National High Technology Industry Agenda 2.0. He further highlighted the needs for the Industry players to exploit the vast applications of semiconductor technology especially in the security, environment and communication fields.
