The Prime Minister was given an overview of the operations, and interacted with the all-women workforce, who enthusiastically welcomed and greeted him.
Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said that it is a big message for the world that he is meeting with the people who are, in a way, the pride of Saudi Arabia.
Shri Narendra Modi said that in today’s competitive world we have to unite our strengths both natural and human, for optimum progress. He said that when women power becomes a part of the development journey, it gathers fresh momentum. He said that the atmosphere he is witnessing at this Centre today, appears to be a harbinger of a positive force for the world. He invited the women IT professionals to visit India, and said their visit will make a huge impact even in India.
The Prime Minister emphasized the role of technology in governance, and said e-governance, for him, means easy governance, effective governance, and economic governance.
The Prime Minister invited them to see the “Narendra Modi App” and even share their views on women empowerment in India.
