As we step forward into the fourth industrial revolution, India has the unique advantage to harness enormous capital for technology driven development that is bottom up and inclusive, because of our twin strengths of demographics and democracy. Our youth and the entire nation is ready to embrace and utilise new technologies for a strong, sustainable and equitable new India.

In the course of the last few decades, human interaction with technology has witnessed remarkable change. Throughout 2020 and 2021, India worked online, studied online, shopped online, received healthcare online, socialised online. India thrived online. This underscores the phenomenal evolution of Digital Technology in India. From being a means of limited engagement and entertainment, it has evolved into a platform of unlimited enablement and empowerment. The advent of 5G has also unleashed a wave of demand for a new generation of digital and technical skills: by 2025, India will require an estimated 22 million skilled workers possessing 5G-related competencies. Furthermore, technological breakthroughs in renewable and new energy have offered a reliable promise and a massive opportunity to secure the promise of a sustainable future for generations to come if new solutions can be developed for creating reliable, clean and affordable energy solutions for India and the world. In addition, Biotechnology-based, therapeutic products and services in multiple medical domains are also being developed to address unmet medical needs.
