Dr Mahathir also said Malaysians need to be creative to progress in information technology to push the country towards the next level of the communication and information age.
"We need more Malaysians to believe that they too can be creative. There is a need for us to believe in ourselves, to believe we can do things that others can do, sometimes we can do things better than others can do.
Dr Mahathir also said at the same function that the world’s economy was moving from an industrial age into the communications and information age and this requires new thinking, innovative thinking, new applications that involve more and more information and more knowledge.
"It is therefore important for us to realize that we need to think differently to use new skills and new technology," he said.
