Further, the Prime Minister said that right now, amid the Ukraine crisis, the world is witnessing how India is evacuating its citizens out of the war zone safely with Operation Ganga.
“From software to health, from Artificial Intelligence (AI) to Electric Vehicle (EV), from drone to semiconductors, the government is bringing reforms in every sector to open up new opportunities for our youth,” he said.
“India has emerged as the second-largest country in the world in mobile manufacturing. Seven years ago, there were only 2 mobile manufacturing companies in India, today more than 200 manufacturing units are engaged in this work,” PM Modi added.
He also urged the youth to create their own startups, and said, “Solutions to local problems and challenges faced by people should come from universities and the youth.”
“Whatever field you are in, the way you set goals for your career, the same way, set goals for the country,” he added.
The sectors in which India did not show any representation before are the ones in which the nation is becoming a global leader, the Prime Minister said.
“The government trusts the strength of the youth of the country. That’s why we are opening sectors one after the other for you. I urge you all to make the most of these opportunities,” he added.
