It was the NDA government which introduced the initiative "Digital India" back in 2015 under the leadership of Narendra Modi in order to keep up with the pace of other countries around the world. From shopping to government procedures everything is going online and government has made an active effort to provide high-speed internet services to rural areas as well. Now that NDA has won with a thumping majority and will lead the country for another 5 years it is very clear that the digital future of India is indeed bright and we are moving forward in the right direction.
The Prime Minister has made it clear that it will be one of the key areas of focus of his government to transform and advance the lives of Indians through an all-inclusive digital economy in his recent tweet which was a reply to Chuck Robbins, who is the chairman and CEO of Cisco. There is no doubt that once again India will become the hot destination for highest Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) which will boost the national economy and the digital economy as well. Prem Watsa, popularly known as the Canadian Warren Buffett has recently said in an interview that India will be the No.1 place for FDI in the next 5 years with money coming in from various countries including US, China and Japan. The trade war of US-China ought to benefit India as we will be seen business friendly and it will only encourage money flow. The frequent foreign trips of Mr.Modi has actually borne fruit in contrary to some popular opinions, because the world is now aware of the potential that India holds and the foreign companies which will help us transform digitally will be making some great profits of their own due to the huge population of 130 crores and increasing. To back my previous statements, here are some rather interesting facts that say:
This is a clear indication of which direction we are heading to and it is safe to say that this is the right way ahead. The world is going digital and so should we. The scope, potential and importance of the virtual world are far more significant than we think.
