New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered a virtual 'State of the World' special address to the World Economic Forum's (WEF) Davos Agenda on Monday, emphasizing India's role in managing the Covid-related crisis and the vaccination drive, as well as the need to look into the international organizations.
Here are major points from his speech
Modi represented India as not only the world's future technological and economic superpower but also as a vital member of the international community.
India achieved a record by administering 1.6 billion Covid vaccination shots and also supported countries in need all through the pandemic. India has always followed the concept of 'One Earth, One Health,' and has provided Covid vaccinations and life-saving medicines to over 150 countries.
The PM even spoke about the work done during the pandemic. He shared that the software professionals did not take a break and worked relentlessly. Everyone together made sure that the world doesn’t see a digital setback.
Addressing India as one of the world's future tech and economic powerhouses, Modi gave an insight into India’s economic and technological reforms, claiming that the days of India's business space being severely disrupted by government control are long gone. Now the businesses can run more freely.
India has advanced a lot digitally. We have more than 4 billion UPI transactions and many startup registrations taking place every year. The nation is connecting digitally.
PM Modi even spoke about climate change and said that we must look into this matter seriously. Thinking about the lifestyle and how we do things is important. India is still focusing on many traditions to keep nature safe.
