India is on a mission to expand its global engagement taking advantage of its excellent manufacturing experience, high-quality talent and cutting-edge advanced technology attainments, said Droupadi Murmu President of India on Thursday in New Delhi.

While speaking at an event, she said that there are many critical areas where international collaboration in engineering and technology would bring about changes to make the world a prosperous and safer place for posterity.

The President said that India has significant potential to engage with the international markets. Our commitment to clean energy has been driving our green growth. 

She added, "India has been marching ahead steadfastly to attain the net zero emission target in 2070."

Noting that IETF-2023 covers 11 areas of emerging technologies which would have a profound impact on our economy and society, the President said that there is no doubt that technology is going to change the way we live. 

She said that we should strive to use technology for social change. Any technology that confines itself to a section of people would gradually wither away. 

On the other hand, the technologies that change the lives of ordinary people in a positive manner get traction. 

"The wide acceptance of the world’s biggest digitisation drive in India is a prime example of the society readily embracing technologies that bring about positive changes in people’s lives," she mentioned.
