Bengaluru: The City will not remain a City of Technology but will become the country’s economic capital in the next five years, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.
Speaking at the valedictory of Bengaluru Tech Summit 2022 and distribution of awards here on Friday November 18 he said that Karnataka has been in a better position in attracting foreign investments and Startups. The State should grow beyond Bengaluru. The State enjoys a good ranking in the fields of agriculture, technology and economy, and naturally, the responsibility is more on us, he noted.
The CM said since Karnataka has been in first place in all fields and maintaining that position is challenging. To achieve it we need to work hard. In this regard, we have confidence in engineers and scientists and their hard work. Modern technology must be used for the betterment of mankind and for building a good society. Each person can bring changes and he must march forward with self-confidence without the fear of losing. This self-confidence has been the inspiration for Tech Summit. Such an event will be successful if industrialists achieve success in their area of work. Many important innovations have happened because of a few individuals and not because of any company, he noted.
He said that the Bengaluru Tech Summit has been successfully conducted and it must be carried forward. The feelings of participants in these three days of events are very important. Bengaluru means a City of Gold and people with a golden heart, he stressed.
