Emphasizing on bridging the gap at the digital level within the country and between different countries, Mukesh Ambani, the country’s richest person and well-known industrialist, said that connectivity and communication have now become a fundamental right of every person. has gone. He also said that with this there is a need to bring the economies of the world back on track. Addressing the Qatar Economic Forum, Ambani said it is difficult to imagine what would have happened in India if there was no 4G telecom network during the pandemic. He said there is a need to bridge the digital gap between countries and within the country as connectivity and communication have now become basic needs like food, clothing and housing.
Ambani, who heads the country’s newest but largest telecom company Reliance Jio, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for a ‘Digital India’ long before the pandemic. And this is the reason why we could successfully deal with the situation arising out of the pandemic. He said that our Prime Minister had given the call of Digital India and I am proud that our digital services company Jio has started 4G network across the country by 2018. Ambani said that we have repeatedly thought that if there was no 4G network, how would we face the Corona crisis?
4G helped in Corona
And it is this digital infrastructure that helped launch the world’s largest vaccination programme, he said. Children got the facility to study from home and people to work from anywhere. Ambani said that I think digital and physical health infrastructure will be the new trend now, in my view, it is extremely important for all economies to integrate and enhance this digital infrastructure, which has been very useful in the Corona crisis.
Corona crisis took the test
Ambani said that a crisis like the Kovid-19 epidemic is a humanitarian crisis of centuries and the world was not prepared for it. He said that this crisis has tested the tenacity of mankind. The world has suffered, but what will ultimately win is not the virus but human power. The production of vaccines as well as the vaccination campaign have shown unprecedented global solidarity. Ambani said that during the crisis in India, we will never forget the friendship of Qatar, which supported during the second wave of the Kovid-19 epidemic by going beyond business and using all its passenger planes for medicine and other essential supplies.
Arabic blood in me
On his ties with West Asia, Ambani said that he was born in Yemen where his father Dhirubhai had gone to work. And he (Dhirubhai) always used to say that I have Arabic blood in me. He said that Reliance values its relations with all Arabic countries. Sovereign Wealth Fund of Gulf countries has invested in Reliance’s digital and retail business. The industrialist said that the second challenge is to ensure that the economies which did not get the benefit of stimulus aid are brought back on track and they grow. So that the whole world progresses in a sustainable manner and not just the developed economies.
