PM Modi addresses session on digital transformation at Bali Summit

PM Modi also addressed a session on digital transformation in the Bali summit on Wednesday. 

He said, “Digital transformation is most remarkable change of our era. Proper use of digital technologies can become force multiplier in decades-long global fight against poverty.”

“Digital solutions can be helpful in fight against climate change as we saw in examples of remote-working & paperless offices during Covid. In India, we are making digital access public, but at international level, there is still huge digital divide,” PM Modi said.

“India’s experience of past few years has shown that if we make digital architecture inclusive, it can bring about socio-economic changes. India has developed digital public goods whose basic architecture has in-built democratic principles,” the Prime Minister said.

“The principle of ‘data for development’ will be integral part of theme of India’s G-20 Presidency ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future'”, he said.

“It is responsibility of G-20 leaders that benefits of digital transformation should not be confined to small part of human race,” PM Modi said.
