Especially the demand for technology has increased. Keeping pace with technology and advancing it has become imperative for the world. India has emerged with a strong and sturdy image in the world.
The Corona epidemic threw many countries in the doldrums including India. It was a hard time for everyone. The US and China also couldn’t survive the recession. During that uncertain time, India managed to stand stronger and prepared millions of vaccines in record time helping its own people as well as those in many other countries. The result is that India is one of the fastest-growing economies now.
Now it’s the time of semiconductors, AI, blockchain and other state-of-the-art technologies. Before 2014, we used to import 92 per cent of mobile phones from other countries, but today we are producing 97 per cent of mobiles of our requirement in our own country, out of which, iPhone and Samsung mobiles are also being produced and exported to other countries. Now we are giving tough competition to China and other countries in the production of technical and electronic equipment.
