The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi was loud and clear with a clear vision to bring back the fractured world to heeling under the one umbrella at WEF. The three-pointer the PM Modi reflected the world at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting 2018 in Davos, Switzerland are, "Climate Change, Terrorism and the backlash against Globalisation", which are the three most significant challenges to civilisation.
PM Modi the representative of the most powered democracy and the fastest growing major economy in the world, in his speech to the 3000 delegates from across the globe, talked about the opportunities and dangers of technology. PM showed to the world, India’s plan to fight the inequality, and how to creat jobs, and also on how the country is “cutting the red tape and rolling out the red carpet” towards the Investment and international trade.
The PM said, “In a world that is full of rifts & fault, we all together need to build a shared future, The balance between the capabilities of the economy and political powers is changing drastically, which well evident is leading to the changes like this, world concerning peace, stability and security.
Before focusing on the three main challenges, he believes the PM India said, the problems we are facing as numerous as they are dunting. The challenges he considers “pose the greatest threat to the survival of human civilisation.”
Challenge 1: Climate Change
There is an extreme change in the weather conditions, sudden floods, or there can be drought, the impact of severe weather is seen. Glaciers are retreating, ice caps are decreasing in the Arctic, and many islands are sinking said, Modi. The countries are failed to live up to the environmental pledges. The Nations should have come out of their limited and narrow confines to demonstrate solidarity.
“Everyone talks about reducing carbon emissions, but there are very few people or countries who back their words with their resources to help developing countries to adopt the relevant technology. Very few of them have come forward to help.
We have moved from a model of frugal consumption to needs-based consumption, to greed-based use, said Narendra Modi. With emphasis, he asked, “Has this been developed or has this been our downfall?".
PM Modi then shared the country's ambitious goal to shift to greener forms of energy.
“To save the environment and to fight climate change, my government has planned a massive campaign and given itself very tough objective,” he said. “By the year 2022, in India, we want to produce 175 gigawatts of renewable energy. This is a huge target for our a Nation like India he said. ”
Challenge 2: Terrorism
The prime minister on a steady strick escalated the topic of terrorism, He said, "The second great threat facing humanity is terrorism."
Not giving a pout to the terrorism as good or bad, the PM said they are equally dangerous, and wold should understate it fast for better. "Terrorism is dangerous but what is even more dangerous is the artificial creation of difference between the good and bad terrorists. The radicalisation of youths is the concern to the PM". Especially the educated class of youth is part of it which must draw your attention, the educated, well-to-do youth are being radicalised, "I hope that this forum will discuss solutions to the fault lines created by terrorism and violence.”
Challenge 3: Globalization
The rejection of the principles of globalisation in some countries and parts of the world were the points the PM raised to bring under notice.
The PM during his address said, “Many societies and countries are becoming more and more focused on themselves, it feels like the opposite of globalisation is happening. The negative impact of this kind of mindset and wrong priorities cannot be considered less dangerous than climate change or terrorism.
“Who is not talking about the interconnected worlds, but we will have to accept the fact that globalisation is slowing losing its lustre.” In its place, “the forces of protectionism are raising their heads against globalisation. Their intention is not just to avoid globalisation, but to reverse its natural flow.”
The raises barriers which are punishing people in developing countries. Trade agreements have come to a standstill, many nations have seen a decrease in cross-border investment, and growth in the global supply chain has been stopped.
“The solution to this worrisome situation against globalisation is not isolation. The solution is in understanding and accepting change.”- Window To News
