During a virtual fireside chat at the ‘India Digital Summit’ (IDS) 2024, Krishnan said that semiconductor is the next big space for the country to grow.

“We have close to 2 million people who are employed in the electronics manufacturing sector and we would like to go up to about 4.5 million as well”.

In a conversation with Deepak Jacob, Group General Counsel, Dream Sports, Krishnan said that “we expect the digital economy to really grow at an increasing pace in the next few years”.

On regulation, the IT Ministry secretary said that while balancing consumer protection and diverse requirements, “we thoroughly examine regulations to ensure the safeguarding of user information”.
