The second day of the TiEcon Delhi 2009 conference opened with a keynote address by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman Dr JS Sarma. The conference continued its sustained focus on the precedence of “smart entrepreneurship in challenging times”.
Dr JS Sarma, during his address, said, “I have been witness to an exciting journey that the country has taken in the area of telecommunications. I think there are opportunities for everyone here since telecom has thrown open a considerable opportunity for everyone. We have had tremendous growth – about 10 million net adds every month – and we will continue to grow and achieve the 500 million subscribers target before the end of this year. We will continue to achieve more in the course of the next 5 years as we become a billion plus. This, in my opinion, gives all entrepreneurs tremendous opportunity.”
Eminent speakers like R Chandrashekhar, Secretary, Ministry of Communication and Information Technology; Dinesh Rai, Secretary of Ministry of MSME and Deepak Gupta, Secretary Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, addressed the present delegates and also interacted with them.
R Chandrashekhar said, “Today fortunately there is a huge downturn in the economy globally that has produced certain changes that will work in India’s favour and the developing world. The downturn has pushed the IT industry in India to search for new avenues for growth, not only in geographical terms, but in different verticals.”
TiEcon Delhi 2009 also witnessed budding entrepreneurs interacting with industry leaders and attending several panel discussions on strategies to efficiently tackle challenging times and the downturn.
