The statement of Minister of Science and Communications Dr. Issa Bashari
May blessings of Allah be upon Muhammad, upon his family and upon his companions. I would like to take this occasion to reflect and to offer deep thanks to my brothers at Sudan University of Science and Technology for giving me this valuable opportunity to be among them in the citadels of knowledge, College of Technology. The title “The fifth Technical and Cultural Week” has drawn my attention to the arrangement of the title’s words. The word technical comes before the word cultural so here comes the importance of the technology. However, the technology represents a cornerstone for any progress or development to be achieved by a state. Here, in the College of Technology, we have found what we are seeking after – technological superiority. We are going to foster this innovative mentality of our students in order to enable them to participate efficiently in the economical, scientific and technical progress of our nation.
