At the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos, the minister spoke on a panel about the biotech revolution. KTR talked about the potential landscape for a biotech revolution in medicine, food, and materials. Rao expanded on mutual cooperation, saying that COVID offered a chance to combat the threat of non-communicable diseases. He expressed confidence in the global financial platform’s ability to connect him with leading biotechnologists and technology firms.
The KTR said that the true potential of technology has not yet fully emerged. He said that if advanced technology is added to science, many problems can be easily solved. He said that along with the preparation of better and more accurate medicines, safe methods would be available in healthcare. Rao said that although science and technology had made tremendous progress over the years, they have not been able to use biotechnology to detect climate change.
The power of industrial biotechnology to provide a definitive solution to climate change is being underestimated.
