Having said this, the last few years also saw budget cuts for the public universities. As a result, the institute has reduced the number of staff over the period, with some senior professors leaving. So the near future will be ever more challenging. More so, as an institute for mathematical research, we will not be as visible as other institutes given the nature of our research and hence the need to make our institute ever more relevant.
Perhaps one should also observe what is happening in other countries with respect to research institutes in mathematical sciences. Certainly, one can see more institutes are being established (not the other way round) showing the (longterm) need for a research ecosystem rooted in highly advanced mathematics given the more complex problems of science and technology. One could try to justify the instituteby throwing in buzzwords like artificial intelligence, big data and quantum technology whose foundations in mathematics are known. To some mathematical researchers, sometimes one feel uncomfortable justifying our research this way since for most of the time the practical applications of mathematical discoveries are often unknown or are very distant in the future. Suffice for us just to demonstrate its international sense of importance through the list of growing mathematics institutes in technological advanced countries. Here are some (not exhaustive):
