The government official gave this information when delivering a speech in the opening ceremony of the Fourth National Conference on Science and Technology.

The minister informed that her department held the National Inquiry on Science, Technology and Innovation between 2013 and 2014, having stressed that her sector is now better prepared to monitor what is taking place in the country in this field.
