Technology and digitization that will shape the world in India: Rajeev Chandrasekhar

India will play a key role in shaping the world’s technology and digitization, Rajiv Chandrasekhar, India’s Minister of State for Electronics and Information Technology, said on Friday.

Speaking at the CII Madhya Pradesh Digital Acceleration Conference in Indore, the minister said technology and digitalisation will play an important role in shaping the future economy, trade and multi-polar world.

Chandrasekhar added that after Covid, India has fared much better than other major countries in the world. “India’s report card shows that we have achieved good results. 2 billion vaccinations, fastest economic growth, highest foreign direct investment, and for everyone else, unprecedented inflation, recession, lockdowns and shutdowns.”

Technology, Digital India, and the use of technology by the government keeps India’s economy on track, he said. “The government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi is developing the course for the Team India model, working with state and local governments to ensure that all young Indians in all second- and third-tier cities and villages in India have access to Techade India.”

The minister further said that there has been a wave of opportunities for innovation and start-ups in India and it has spread to all the smaller cities like Indore.

Earlier in the day, Chandrasekhar attended the Madhya Pradesh Pride Awards event organised by Sansad Seva Sakalp and Invest Indore and congratulated 75 IT and ITES companies in the state.

Later in the evening, the Minister attended the graduation ceremony of the Symbiosis University of Applied Sciences in Indore as the chief guest.
