I ndustrialists must not only focus on innovation and development but also to do works that will bring revenue to the government,said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

Speaking at the virtual inauguration of Bengaluru Tech Summit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Wednesday,he said creativity has a lot of angles.

Globally,they have faced many challenges.On the one hand the world is sinking with problems and money sources are declining.

They will have to face serious problems in case they fail to find solutions to it. Their forefathers had a systematic lifestyle.

Now they have to give a perfect future for their kids. “We must not steal from the future but save the earth for the future generation.

A serious thinking is required in regard to protection of Mother Earth”.

Universal thinking required
He said any new technology that will come out must have the quality to save the environment and to reduce the digital distance.

It must be environment-friendly technology, novelty and eco-economics. IT/BT and International Intelligence can protect resources.

They must examine what is good for them with the help of a huge source of information.Renewable energy will also play an important role.

Develop technology for simple living in the city
The CM said the maharajas of Mysuru have made immense contributions to the fields of science, technology and education,and later to industry.

Now IT/BT has come.Visitors to Bengaluru visit IT/BT companies.Hitherto,it was the time of wealthy people and now it is time for people with knowledge.

Everyday around 5,000 engineers visit Bengaluru as there are 400 R&D labs in the state capital.The government has been extending all help to make Beyond Bengaluru a reality.

The IT industry is promoted in Mysuru,Mangaluru and Hubli-Dharwad.The next decade will witness more urbanisation and 40 per cent of the country will be urbanised.

So, IT/BT companies will develop technology for the simple living in urban areas.”All is possible in Bengaluru”

The CM said the need of the hour is to build a health society through the use of technology in the field of health.

Under Jal Jeevan Mission,potable drinking water is provided to 7 crore households across the country. Six new cities are coming up around Kalaburgi, Hubballi-Dharwad, Mysuru and Mangaluru.

A new town is being constructed adjacent to Bengaluru for knowledge, science and technology. It is situated nearer to Bengaluru Airport.

An announcement regarding this city will be announced in six months.Projects will be formulated from the government side.

A Startup Park is also planned and it will be established in another six months.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had recently opened Terminal-2 of BIAL and it is one of the most beautiful terminals in the world. Everything is possible in Bengaluru and all new technologies must focus on the development of mankind in the whole world.
