Blog: What India can do to build, bridge and bolster digital trust
The world’s digital economy stands at a threshold where opportunity and risk stand in balance. Our digital evolution and productive use of new technologies rests on how well we can build digital trust. India, with many policy-led pushes for digitalization, including a Digital India campaign and initiatives, such as demonetization, to give a boost to digital payments, warrants the need for systemic changes to boost digital evolution in this type of environment. Bhaskar Chakravorti in this seminar will explore the privacy, security, and accountability aspects of the digital environments, as users’ expectations and interests change, so does public sentiment and regulatory pressure. While it will be up to digital companies to keep up and innovate in this new frontier for competitiveness what does the definition of digital trust mean in the Indian context?
The next Development Seminar will feature Bhaskar Chakravorti, Non-Resident Senior Fellow at Brookings India.
Bhaskar Chakravorti is the Senior Associate Dean of International Business & Finance at The Fletcher School at Tufts University and Founding Executive Director of Fletcher’s Institute for Business in the Global Context.
