This park aims to ensure that the current employees in IT acquire the right skills to support the country’s industrial sector.The other part of the RSTP is the Biotechnology Park. It is a multi-purpose platform for R&D in bio-related technologies, and production. This park consists of the biotechnology research centre, incubation facilities, service centre and agricultural related biotechnology facility.
