Priyank Kharge, the IT minister for the state of Karnataka, announced the dates for the next Bengaluru Tech Summit three iterations and encouraged participation from other countries.
The dates for the following three iterations of Bengaluru Tech Summit (BTS), Karnataka’s premier event, were released by IT Minister Priyank Kharge on Monday.
While the event will be held in the state capital this year from November 29 to December 1, the dates for the 2024 and 2025 editions will be between November 19 and 21, respectively.
In a news conference, the Minister remarked, “The event dates for 2024 and 2025 were announced early to encourage international tech organisations to play their participation well in advance.”
He said that making the dates known in advance demonstrated Karnataka’s ongoing dedication to the sector’s growth while collaborating across domestic and international boundaries.
The Karnataka government’s dedication to innovation, technology, and growth, according to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, is demonstrated by the yearly event, which was mentioned earlier at a curtain-raiser ceremony before BTS.
“We celebrate not just the incredible technical advances we have made, but also the unwavering spirit of innovation that has come to characterise our state. This summit serves as evidence of our ongoing commitment to creating an environment that supports and encourages the development of cutting-edge technologies, he added during an interactive session.
IT Minister Encourages Global Participation in Bengaluru Tech Summit
The first IT policy in Karnataka, according to Siddaramaiah, was implemented in 1992 by the Congress-led administration. The growth of Electronics City, which later came to represent India’s IT strength, was made possible by this approach, according to him.
The political structure, state government, and administration have always been stable thanks to the Congress. According to Siddaramaiah, we are dedicated to fostering an environment with stable and predictable policies that will encourage long-term commitments.
The Chief Minister acknowledged that Bengaluru, one of the cities with the highest rates of population growth in the world, has problems with traffic, transit, and other aspects of infrastructure development.
In contrast to the preceding administrations, there is unquestionably a change in the goals of the Congress government, he continued.
By enhancing the experience of using public transportation, enhancing last-mile connection, and building infrastructure to eliminate bottlenecks, our administration is moving quickly to alleviate traffic concerns. According to Siddaramaiah, we are dedicated to quickly extending the metro network.
Karnataka is regarded as a preferable location for investments by top Indian and international multinational corporations, the Chief Minister further informed the crowd.
