Information Technology sector to enable other industries become globally competitive

Information Technology (IT) Secretary Neeraj Mittal said this edition of the CII Connect 2021 mainly focused on start-ups

Information and Technology Minister T. Mano Thangaraj, at the valedictory session of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Connect 2021, said Information Technology sector will enable other industries to become globally competitive.

Therefore, many steps are being taken by the Tamil Nadu government towards bridging the gap in information and communications technology (ICT) skills and training people to become technologically-savvy.

Information Technology (IT) Secretary Neeraj Mittal said this edition of the CII Connect 2021 mainly focused on start-ups and the need for government to help them to create jobs for the unemployed youth. In all types of technologies, he emphasised the need for innovation and commented that deep tech is altogether a different technology with so many challenges that are to be addressed by entrepreneurs.

Kalyan Kumar B., global chief technology officer and head, ecosystems, HCL Technologies, advised academic bodies help increase critical thinking and allow talent gap to be bridged eventually. R. Narayanan, national leader – education and skill development, KPMG International Ltd., while sharing the key takeaways from the summit, said implementation of BharatNet in the State would cover all village panchayats this year, and added that Tamil Nadu Data Centre Policy announced by Chief Minister M.K. Stalin would go long way in making digital technology available to all sections of people and various government departments in the State.

1,500 participated in the event physically while 5,000 took part digitally, said S Chandrakumar, chairman, CII Tamil Nadu.
