When we talk about Delhi the first thing that comes to our mind is the level of pollution it exerts. But one cannot forget the growth and the awesome infrastructure that Delhi ensures. Recently, IT major Dell came up with the report of 50 future-ready cities around the world that are embracing technology to adapt and thrive in an ever-changing and globalized future. Delhi is ranked 44th on the list which is topped by San Jose, followed by San Francisco.
The ‘Future-Ready Economies Model’ scores large, high-growth global metropolitan areas based on attributes that enable people and organisations to access new tools and ideas that deliver better connectivity, better economic performance and a greater ability to attract talent.
The cities positioned in the list were evaluated along three dimensions — human capital, infrastructure and commerce. Delhi scored quite high on these parameters. “Delhi’s ranking on this list is validation of India’s progress in the right direction. We look forward to partnering with the government and creating a future-ready India,” Ravinder P.Singh,Director,Dell India said.
With plethora of government initiatives like Digital India, Smart city, Make in India coming up we can definitely hope to see few more cities to feature in this list in near future.
