Gandhi Nagar, 10 Jan 2017 : Identifying India’s strength in its demography, democracy, and demand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday stressed the need for digital-based governance to bring efficiency in the country’s decision-making process and to boost the economy.

Inaugurating the eighth edition of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit here, Modi said that the digital economy had “played key role” in transforming hardship-based governance to system-based governance, discretionary-based administration to policy-based administration, and informal economy to formal economy.

“Digital technology has played a key role. I often say that e-governance is easy and effective governance. We need quality driven governance.”

“Online process brings speed and openness and decision making. We are working to adopt and absorb newer technology to bring transparency and end discretion,” said Modi.

He, however, did not make any mention of demonetisation in his half-hour speech.

Modi said that India has registered excellent growth, despite the global slowdown.

“We have become sixth largest manufacturing country in the world, up from the ninth. Our growth of manufacturing has registered nine percent in 2015-16. This is much higher than the five-six per cent growth in previous three years,” he said.

He said that the government was further rationalising its policies and procedures to make it convenient for business and growth.

“India is bright spot in the global economy. World Bank, IMF and other institutions have projected even better growth in the coming days. In 2014-15, India contributed 12.5 per cent of global growth. Its contribution to global growth is 68 per cent higher, than its share of the world economy,” Modi told delegates from 12 countries and industry captains present on the dais.
