"At present, we still lack human resources to work development programs on aviation and space technology," he said.
Lapan hoped the government would increase and improve the quality of human resources in the field of science and technology in line with its programs to develop human resources.

"With superior human resources, we spur a progressive and independent Indonesia. The same rule applies in the field of aviation and space technology," he remarked. (INE)
