In line with this goal, ITS cooperated by signing a memorandum of understanding or Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of West Sumbawa Regency, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) at the ITS Rectorate Building Monday (12/9) afternoon.

This collaboration aims to develop regional potential, improve the quality of human resources (HR), maturation of the Smart City master plan, design an Electronic-Based Government System (SPBE), and improve Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
In his remarks, Musyafirin revealed that West Sumbawa Regency has regional potential that, until now, still needs to be developed. However, limited human resources in managing the area’s potential are one problem that needs to be addressed immediately. “More and more of our local children are receiving education at ITS, making them highly competitive human resources so that they can manage the diversity of existing potentials,” he added.
