"Surely, we can walk the fine balance between privacy and openness on the one hand and national security on the other", he said. "Together, we can overcome the differences between global and open systems on one hand, and nation-specific legal requirements on the other".

The Prime Minister addressed that it was necessary for the global community to move toward the issue of cyber-security with confidence, as much as with resolve.

Cyber-space remains a key area for innovation.

"A lot has changed since then". News that experts tell us from studios is now supplemented by experiences highlighted on social media. "On a macro-scale, it has contributed to emergence of a flat world, where a developing nation like India can compete on a level footing with developed nations", Modi said. Indian IT companies have made name for themselves. In this event, PM Modi talked about the Digital technology and said that this event will mark the participation of numerous ministers, academic personalities and industry leaders to talk about the global cyber ecosystem. "It has paved way for efficient delivery and governance". It was improving access in domains from education to health.

Saying Internet had provided "ease of living" to Indians, Modi added: "Empowerment through digital access is an objective the government is especially committed to".

The prime minister said, "We are using mobile power or M-power to empower our citizens".

Or a small entrepreneur can register on a government e-marketplace and bid competitively for supply of goods for the government. Mr Modi said citizens of the country are increasingly adopting cashless transactions. This needed information sharing and coordination among nations. "It is our firm belief that there are millions of Indians, whose transformative ideas can go a long way in taking India to new heights", he noted.

The MyGov platform is a prime example of how technology strengthens offices.

He also added that technology breaks barriers and silos. We need cyber warriors who will remain alert. PRAGATI has put back on track infrastructure projects worth billions of dollars which were stuck in red-tape.

Mr Modi also launched UMANG app, which is a unified platform for multiple government of India mobile apps. "This integrated approach will add an automatic layer of "peer performance pressure", in the working of these departments", he said.

"Cyber for All: A Secure and Inclusive Cyberspace for Sustainable Development" is a two-day event which is being organised for the first time in India. The last conference held in The Netherlands saw about 1,800 delegates, and this year over 10,000 delegates participated in person.

The global conference is being attended by representatives from 124 countries and 33 ministerial delegates from 31 countries. The third and fourth GCCS were held in 2013 in Seoul and in 2015 in The Hague respectively.
