Minister Quan said that in 2013 the propaganda on science and technology would focus on important policies of the party, National Assembly, the Government, ministries and agencies on science and technology; the continuation of renovating science and technology activities and management; national programmes and projects on science and technology; policies on the important function of science and technology staff, developing science and technology human resources; and success in applying science and technology in production.
