Marching towards digital prowess: Nagaland soon to start technology incubator



Director General of Software Technology Parks of India (STPI) Omkar Rai on December 21 said the Indian IT industry has been doing very well during the pandemic and the sector will witness significant advancements in the future.

While addressing the virtual ‘e-Naga Summit 2020’ organised by the Information Technology and Communication department of the state government, Rai said, “The IT industry has done great in such difficult times because of its strong foundations and adaptability to change.”

Mentioning that India has done great in terms of IT Hubs, he said, “Nagaland’s aspiration to become the IT Hub of Southeast Asia is absolutely genuine and is commensurate with the ambition of the nation and SPTI.”

The STPI Director General appreciated the state government’s initiative in allotting space to start a STPI Centre and a Network Centric Centre with a well-built incubator.

Nagaland Advisor for IT, Communication, Science and Technology Mmhonlumo Kikon asserted that the Nagaland government is very determined and committed to fulfil the vision of making the state the next IT Hub of Southeast Asia.

The event organised virtually saw experts from Europe, Southeast Asia and the country speaking on a range of topics from Software Technology, e-governance, cyber security, consultancy among others. (PTI)
