ISKANDAR PUTERI: Robotics in Malaysia could be further expanded to fulfil the needs of the country in the future, says Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba.

The ratio of robots to humans in Malaysia currently stands at 55 robots to every 10,000 people, the Science, Technology and Innovation Minister said.

He added that his Ministry aims to increase that ratio to 195 robots to every 10,000 humans by 2030.

"The National Science Council has approved the Robotic Talent Development Academy with collaboration with various government agencies, including the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry and the Education Ministry," said Dr Adham

"Apart from analysing current needs, we are also training talent through the academy to ensure that we are able to increase the target ratio by the year 2030," he added.

He said this when met during the pre-launch of Drone Edu Challenge 4.0 at Iskandar Puteri here on Saturday (June 25).

"We need to take the target seriously and double our efforts to increase participation in the robotics industry, including in the drone sector," he said.
