Development and information
Development and information are two inseparable variables that depend on each other to thrive. Power, affluence, advancement, and better society depends on the quality of research-based information available to the stakeholders per unit point in time. As the world drifts towards professionalism, professionalism drifts towards quality information, and information drifts towards research, the need for detailed research-based information as drivers of professionalism cannot be overemphasized.
