PM Modi's 'Digital India' initiative bridges gap between urban and rural areas: Richard Verma

New Delhi, Aug 27 (ANI): US Ambassador to India Richard Verma on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Digital India' initiative highlights India's commitment to enhancing digital capacity, across a variety of sectors, bridging the divide between urban and rural communities. Speaking at ASSOCHAM's 7th Annual Summit on Cyber and Network Security, Verma said every time a country increases its internet penetration by ten percent, its total economic growth can expand by up to two percent.

Talking on Cyber and Internet Security, Richard said the risk is greater when we are more reliant on internet. Verma said that all stakeholders have a critical role in cyber security and cyber crime as well.
