The theme of the session was ‘Future Frontiers: Competitiveness, Technology, Sustainability and Internationalization’.
The Minister asserted that, in today’s era, security equations are changing at an unprecedented pace and countries are focusing more than ever on technological advancements in the fields like artificial intelligence, quantum computing and genetics. He termed it as both a challenge of not lagging behind in the race of technology as well as an opportunity of making a mark.
