“The State intends to provide skill training to youth while empowering them digitally and economically through STPI,” Chief Minister Kalikho Pul said speaking to media persons in Itanagar recently. He expressed hope that the project would generate employment opportunities for the educated youth of Arunachal Pradesh.
The STPI centre would also enable good governance through smart administration by employing new channels of communication, such as e-governance, which would allow faster delivery of services and a wider reach of governance, the CM said. “All these measures have to be taken if Itanagar has to qualify to become a Smart City,” he added.
“Technology is important because it serves a variety of functions in education, communication, business and scientific progress. It has become an essential part of our lives today and few can imagine living without it,” he said.
