We are focused to enable digital opportunities to reach to the masses and leverage them." She additionally highlighted the issue of data protection in the discussion as she stated, "We are planning a robust data protection framework to empower the digital mandate. Data protection is beyond Aadhaar; issue of privacy is a global threat."
Stating the issue of data protection in the digital domain, Debjani Ghosh, President Designate, Nasscom said, "Critical end to end data policy is a must. The emerging technology needs solid building blocks of data privacy which will enhance the dependency on the digital media. Digital solutions can enhance the employment in the rural areas if we cater it to the most underprivileged parts of India."
Rajan S Mathews, Director General, COAI speaking on the vision of 5G in India emphasized on the periphery of competitive landscape of the telecom industry. He said, "We need to position ourselves in the telecom industry with the spectrum auctions pricing methodology. We need more spectrum in the upcoming time to leverage the last customer of a telecom company."
Dr. TP Krishnan, Secretary, Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship addressed a panel discussion on the theme of 'Developing A Digital Workforce- The Ground Realities'.
