Through our in-house research we found out that most youths are unaware of what digital economy means and how they can be future ready, in the rural area this perception is rather worse.

While some believe Digital economy is all about fintechs with most conversation being driven by the fintech community, it is time to develop a deeper understanding that will propel growth and drive inclusiveness in all sectors, from Agric to health, education eLearning, aviation even politics and governance. Mr. Naphtal added.


“I encourage organizations to engage in this years campaign by sharing their own stories The DEAM will be observed with a series of activities, all through month of November.”
