In a move to build the capacity of young people and community groups as well as to stimulate the economy through digital innovation, the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) and STL has started working together to come up with labs at strategic locations across the country.  

This  will provide technical training to produce skilled human capital in the community, and create an environment conducive to innovation in the advanced manufacturing space.  In time, this public-private sector partnership should see some positive impact on the economy through digital innovation, and an increase in the potential of SMEs as well as larger businesses through the creation of business-centric technology enterprise.
