Digital Technologies which include Cloud Computing and Mobile Applications have emerged as catalysts for rapid economic growth and citizen empowerment across the globe. Digital technologies are being increasingly used by us in everyday lives from retail stores to government offices. They help us to connect with each other and also to share information on issues and concerns faced by us. In some cases, they also enable resolution of those issues in near real time.
The objective of the Digital India Group is to come out with innovative ideas and practical solutions to realise Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of a digital India. Prime Minister Modi envisions transforming our nation and creating opportunities for all citizens by harnessing digital technologies. His vision is to empower every citizen with access to digital services, knowledge, and information. This Group will come up with policies and best practices from around the world to make this vision of a digital India a reality.
I am delighted to announce that the Government of Rajasthan is organising the Resurgent Rajasthan Partnership Summit on 19th and 20th November 2015 in Jaipur. Our vision is to see Rajasthan as the most developed, front-runner state in the country and this event is part of our endeavour to take the State forward on the path of inclusive and comprehensive development.
We recognise the role that businesses can play in assisting the State to move to a higher growth trajectory. It is our firm belief that forging partnerships and deepening our engagement with the private sector will allow us to harness the demographic dividend and create a habitat for employment and economic growth.
Rajasthan is rich in natural resources and enjoys a unique spatial advantage. The State offers a competitive policy environment, developed infrastructure, a remarkable talent pool and geographic advantage by virtue of its location to investors. Promising investment opportunities can be found across a wide range of sectors which include information technology, automotive, renewable energy, tourism, healthcare, agro-processing, minerals, textiles, defence, electronic hardware, and MSME.
Rajasthan has always valued partnerships in growth. We are constantly striving to simplify regulations and further improve the ease of doing business in the State.
I invite you all to review what we have on offer and to pursue your business and investment interests here in Rajasthan. I look forward to welcoming you in Jaipur.
