Posted: Sat, December 29 2012 | 10:35 am

JAKARTA: Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection Minister Linda Amalia Sari has said she hopes more women will undertake research in the field of technology for the future development of the sector.

“We will continue to encourage more women to immerse themselves in technology development research for the country,” Linda said in Jakarta on Friday.

The minister said she had signed a memorandum of understanding ( MoU ) with the Agency for Assessment and Application of Technology ( BPPT ) on research for technological development, Antara news agency reported.

“The objective of the MoU is to enable more women and children to take advantage of the advancements in applied technology,” she said, adding that applied technology would not prevent women from playing their traditional roles in society.

“Not all technology is bad for women. Some has a positive impact on their welfare for example the field of herbal medicine manufacturing,” Linda noted.
