THE nation will undoubtedly be looking at various outlooks of development through science and technology at the Knowledge Convention 2014, which is set to be held tomorrow.
Setting its sights on underscoring the essence of science and technology in enhancing the quality of life of the people, the event will feature exhibitions segregated into six zones – each of which will cover different areas with respect to achieving the Brunei Vision 2035.
Zone 1 will focus primarily on catalysts attributing to the development of the nation, including the integration of the Islamic heritage with modern day science and technology, while Zone 2 will centre on utilising science and technology for the control of the nation’s infrastructure.
Zone 3 will exhibit a ‘Water for Life’ conceptualised outlook on the government’s growing efforts in maintaining the provision of clean water for the nation.
Meanwhile, Zone 4 will showcase ‘Warisan Gemilang’ – a collection of iconic projects of infrastructure as initiated by His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam.
The Survey Department will take charge of Zone 5, showcasing its roles in determining the moon sighting in accordance to Islam. The correlation between astronomy in the Islamic perspective will also be a part of the exhibit.
The final zone will cover the ‘Investigation, Realisation & Discovery’ development aspects of His Majesty’s government in accordance to the monarch’s titah.
The Knowledge Convention will also include a three-day symposium covering in-depth insights into science and Islam.
