“Technology touches and improves the lives of individuals, families, communities, businesses, and nations, and effective application of it has been the greatest differentiator in terms of how nations progress. On this national technology day, we urge people who have benefited from leveraging technology to make two important decisions.
“The first is to enable access to technology for people who don’t have the privilege or access to it. And the second is to not just consume but also contribute to creating technology and building the know-how to apply technologies in the surrounding communities. These small steps will lead us towards building more empowered communities and a strong, self-reliant nation.”
