    India consumes more mobile data than combined consumed by several big nations: Modi

    "When I had spoken of Digital India, some people had raised all kinds of questions. 'Digital, in India?' I'd like to say that 5-6 years back we were one of the most backward nations in terms of per capita data consumption. But today, the situation has changed," PM Modi in Copenhagen.

    "India consumes more mobile data than combined data consumed by several big nations. New users are not from cities but from far off villages. It hasn't only empowered villages & poor of India but also opened the gate to a major digital market. This is a real story of New India," he informed.

    "You should inspire at least five of your friends to visit India...and people will say 'Chalo India'. This is the work you all 'Rashtradoot' have to do," PM Modi said while interacting with Indian diaspora.

    "I want to tell our Danish friends to come to India to jointly find answers to the problems of the planet," he mentioned.

    When India pulls its citizens out of poverty, it goes down across the world: PM Modi in Copenhagen

    Continuing speaking at the Indian community event, PM Modi said, "When I meet world leaders they never tire of narrating about the peaceful and hardworking nature of the Indians. Inclusiveness and cultural diversity is the strength of the Indian community."

    "Imagine, if we wouldn't have been able to take vaccination to every family in India, what would've been its impact on the world. Had India not worked on made in India & effective vaccines, not had a large scale production, what would've been the situation in several countries," PM Modi said.

    "I talk about 'LIFE' - Lifestyle for the environment; we have to give up the consumption-oriented approach, use and throw is negative for the planet. Our consumption should be determined by our needs, not the size of our pocket," he added.

    "When India pulls its citizens out of poverty, the poverty across the world goes down. When poor in India are given several facilities like housing, sanitation, clean drinking water, free health care & financial inclusion, it gives a new trust to several countries of the world," the Prime Minister said.

    "I want to tell our Danish friends to come to India to jointly find answers to the problems of the planet," Modi mentioned.

    Denmark & India are moving fast in transforming our Green Strategic Partnership into some concrete results. Indian government has high ambitions for the green transition. I am proud that Danish solutions play a key role in realising these important ambitions, said Danish PM Mette Frederiksen, as both nations exchanged MoUs.
