External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar participated in the 6th edition of Global Technology Submmit 2021. In a virtual address at the Global Technology Summit 2021, Mr Jaishankar said "Technology has always been a double-edged sword. It has opened up new vistas of progress just as it has helped create greater vulnerabilities and threats. A recurring theme in global governance has been to find the right balance".
Global Technology Summit is the flagship event, jointly organized by the Ministry of External Affairs and Carnegie India held annually since 2016. The Summit convenes policymakers and domain experts to discuss policy aspects of trending technology topics.
Mr Jaishankar also mentioned that mastering the key domains of technology has now become an expression of power and influence in a world that is more globalised and technology driven.
