    PM Modi said, "The senior generation would recall the bulky main-frame computer systems of the 70s and 80s. A lot has changed since then. Email and personal computers brought about a new revolution in the nineties."

    "This was followed by the advent of social media and the mobile phone as an important vehicle for data storage and communication," he said.

    Speaking on the success of Digital India policy, he said, "Through better targeting of subsidies, the 'JAM trinity' has prevented leakages to the tune of nearly ten billion dollars so far."

    "Technology breaks barriers, it validates the Indian philosophy of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, the world is one family," PM said.

    He further said that citizens of India are increasingly adopting cashless transactions. "For this, we created the Bharat Interface for Money - or BHIM App. This App is helping the movement towards a less cash and corruption-free society," he said.

    Abou the theme of the conference, PM Modi said, "The global community needs to approach the issue of cyber-security with confidence, as much as with resolve. Cyber-space technologies must remain an enabler for our people."

    The Prime Minister was equally emphatic that nations must take responsibility to ensure that the digital space does not become a playground for terrorism and radicalisation.

    India, he said, is keen to find innovative and scalable solutions in education and healthcare using digital technology.

    A two-day Global Conference on Cyberspace is expected to see global policymakers, innovators, industrialists and cybersecurity experts converge on November 23 and 24 in New Delhi to deliberate on issues and challenges for optimally using the cyberspace.

    Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, Ranil Wickremesinghe, who is on a 4-day visit to India, will attend the opening session of 5th Global Conference.

    The plenary sessions have been designed around the themes Cyber4Inclusive growth, cyber4DigitalInclusion, Cyber4Security, and Cyber4Diplomacy.
