The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is organizing its two-day first summit on science and technology at the level of head of states and government in Astana, Kazakhstan from tomorrow.

The summit will evolve a unified position at the highest levels of decision-making in Member States with a view to advancing the different fields of science, technology and innovation.

The Summit is important as it underscores the Member States' support for scientific fields by demonstrating the Muslim world's knowledge contributions away from the negative stereotypes that have become widespread recently.

The Summit is also of significance considering that Muslims constitute a quarter of the world population and their countries possess abundant natural resources.

The summit is only the starting point for finding solutions to the countless problems facing the Muslim world using science and technology.

The gathering could contribute to combating extremism and terrorism by reducing unemployment rates and attracting the youth to work in scientific and technological fields.
