The conference also discussed the technology’s enormous impact on democracy, ordinary people’s access to information, freedom of expression and internet freedom, and discussed the challenges of artificial intelligence (AI).

When talking about India, Anita Sharma said that with Prime Minister Modi’s recent visit to the United States and the participation of technology giants, the United States is sending a message to China: technology is changing, and the United States is looking for new partners in India.

Regarding China, Sharma said that the Chinese Premier has publicly stated that China still wants to be the factory and warehouse of the United States and wants to cooperate with the United States, regardless of geopolitical issues.

Meanwhile, accusations of China’s human rights abuses against Uyghurs, Canadian election interference and Beijing’s regime in hostage diplomacy with Canada raise some bigger questions about Canada’s relationship with China, Melissa Lanzman said.

She mentioned India’s abundance of young talent and Canada’s welcoming attitude towards them.

She emphasized that if Canada wants to be a leader in technological change, then Canada should work with countries that share our values, such as India.

She added that Canada has lost its core diplomatic relationship with India, emphasizing that Canada’s relationship with India “should have been better, they could have been better, and one day they will be better again.”

In her concluding remarks, Anita said that the United States has a close relationship with India, as evidenced by Silicon Valley. (Arnie)
