I’m thankful to the President, Prime Minister, and people of India, and look forward to continuing to work with people across India to help them use technology to achieve more.”
“We are living in a period of historic economic, societal and technological change,” said Nadella following his meeting with Prasad. “The next decade will be defined by digital technology.
