This chapter discusses various policies for information gathering, such as the Visiting Engineers Scheme (VES), TechAlert Scheme, Overseas Technical Information Service, Outward Science and Technology Expert Mission Scheme, and others. These schemes are aimed at bringing overseas science and technology information to particular countries. Without these schemes, the government may not acknowledge what they are trying to do or what they want to achieve, and there might be an absence of an information perspective. Adapting certain schemes can make contributions to achieving a certain and more recognizable objective.
