Our Government is focused on making Karnataka a global hub for innovation and FKCCI is playing a critical role in shaping the innovation ecosystem in India."

On the occasion, Principal Secretary, Department of Commerce & Industries and Department of IT, BT and Science & Technology, Gaurav Gupta, said, "India is looking further to deepen our engagement and relationship with the ASEAN countries, and this is a great opportunity to host them in Bengaluru which serves as a destination for innovators and startups."
