Narendra Modi was at Davos for addressing the World Economic Forum and became the first Indian Prime Minister to do so, during his speech he expressed the concerns about serious challenges and serious issues which the world is facing including terrorism.
‘Creating a shared future in a fractured world’ was WEF’s theme and referring to it, he said ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ (the world is one family) has become more relevant in today’s world to address the distance in the worlds.
The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting aims to rededicate leaders from all walks of life to developing a shared narrative to improve the state of the world.
He said that climate change and terrorism which are big concerns before the world, and also emphasised that terrorism is dangerous but ‘artificial distiction’ between good terrorist and bad terrorist is equally dangerous for all.
Referring to last time in 1997 when Prime Minister attended the WEF, India’s GDP was approx USD 400 billion and now the GDP has increased more than six times.
