We need to empower every Indian, says Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella

New Delhi : Microsoft Chief Executive Satya Nadella on Monday said his company’s focus on India is to empower every citizen and organisation so that they can perform better than their potential and achieve more for themselves and the country.

Showing sign of the Indian market’s increasing importance, Nadella said there is a need to bring the idea of reinventing productivity and business process and bring new technological innovations for the country’s development.

“The apps that you build will change our lives and our work. It’s the creativity that we want to ignite. I love the phrase- ‘When you change the way you see the world, you change the world you see’. We want to invoke your ambition of how you are going to change the world,” Nadella said while delivering the keynote address at Taj Palace here after a conversation with young achievers, students, developers and entrepreneurs.

“Every time I come here, I go back energised. It’s infectious to see the creativity here. It’s important to dream big and create big,” he added.

In his third visit to the country in just seven months, Hyderabad-born Nadella, with a dream to empower India, said: “It is not about celebrating our own technology; it is about celebrating the technology that India creates.”

Also present during the event was Minister of State for Finance Jayant Sinha, who said Microsoft is a platform for India’s growth.

The Microsoft CEO’s visit follows after Apple CEO Tim Cook and Dell Inc’s Miachel Dell visited the country recently. (ANI)
