Bengaluru, November 19
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said it is time for tech solutions that are designed in India to be deployed for the world, and declared that the country is uniquely positioned to leap ahead in the information era.
He also called on the industry to make a conscious attempt to take product-level innovations to the next level.
Addressing the Bengaluru Tech Summit, 2020, virtually, Karnataka’s flagship technology event, he said his government’s policy decisions were always aimed at liberalising the tech and innovations industry.
Recently the government has eased the compliance burden on the IT industry in various ways.
Besides, it has always tried to engage with stakeholders in the tech industry and chart out future-proof policy frameworks for India, Modi noted.
“You all are the drivers of this industry. Can we make a conscious attempt to take our product-level innovations to the next level? A framework-level mindset has the potential to build an eco-system of multiple successful products,” he said at the inaugural of the summit attended among others by Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa.
Union IT and Communications Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad attended the event virtually. The summit, which started today, will conclude on November 21. — PTI
