It enables providing skills needed for a sustainable value creation as an individual in the 21st century, enabling critical thinking communications, collaboration and creativity - rated by World Economic Forum as the top skills needed in tomorrow's world.

Delighted to be the Chief Guest at 2nd India-China Technology Transfer, Collaborative Innovation & Investment Conference in New Delhi today and interact with several academics, scientists, officials and entrepreneurs from both countries, including Shri V K Mishra, Executive Vice Chairman, India-China Trade Center, Dr H Purushotam, CMD, NRDC, and Mr Hou Shuqian, Director General, Yunnan Academy of Science and Technology.

In my talk I reflected on the good work the India China Trade
Centre has been doing for the last two decades in promoting bilateral trade and Investment between India and China, and helping promote bilateral trade and investments through intervention of technology and Innovation. Technology can act as a catalyst in creating closer links between both the countries towards shared innovation and investment.

As countries and neighbours, India and China have been trade partners for more than thousand years through silk route. Trade and knowledge is a shared legacy with China.

Budhist monks and travellers visiting Nalanda and Takshashila (AD 399 – 700), including Fa-Hien (Faxian), Huen Tsang (Xuanzang) and I-Tsing ( Yijing) travelled all over India.

The 21st Century clearly belongs to Asia as its leader, with India and China leading global economy. This transformation would not have been possible without technology and innovation.

Since 2014, significant policies and key initiatives of the Shri Narendra Modi ji's government such as “Make in India”, “Starup India”, “Skill India”, “Digital India”, "Smart Cities",and “Double Farmers' Income" etc, are transforming India into a major economic force of the world.

These initiatives provide opportunities for both countries to work together in a win-win situation and further cooperation in Technology Transfer development opens doors of immense opportunities. Cross Border Investment in Infrastructure, both conventional and Modern (Metro, Smart City), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cloud Computing, Energy & New Energy, Electric Vehicles etc. and have created immense opportunities for B2B and B2G.

India can learn many lessons from China, who already has many unicorns, especially Alibaba. Setting target for India of 1 million start-up and 100 unicorns by 2022 with collaborative efforts and experience of China.

I wish the conference great success for making deliberations
and B2B interaction in next two days and congratulations to all parties which will be signing MoUs.

Thank You! Xie Xie! Jai Hind!
