About his meeting with the Indian Prime Minister Mr Amon said, “We talked about an incredible opportunity to advance the industry not only domestically in India but Indian as an exporter of technology as we think about the digital transformation. Very pleased with the conversations and we’re very, very happy with everything we’re doing together with India,” he added.

Mr Narayen said that the key topic was “continued investment in innovation, because he certainly believes that technology is the way to help move things forward.” They also “talked about artificial intelligence and what might happen with artificial intelligence, we talked about creativity, the importance of creativity and how media, the ever-changing nature of video,” he said. About his company’s plans, he said, “India is a big area of investment for us. Adobe has three growth initiatives: Everything around creativity, document productivity and powering digital businesses. Artificial intelligence is going to change how all those three solutions are delivered. So we intend to continue to invest heavily in it.”

Mr Widmar said, “One of the things we want to do in India is not only to be there to support the domestic market, but we want to be a technology leader in leveraging capabilities that India can provide. And then also compete on a global platform and participate in export into international markets.” He said that India’s goal of producing 450 gigawatts of renewable energy by 2030 was of global significance in dealing with climate change and “we would want to be part of this.” He said that the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) programme of the government to encourage productivity was a draw.

Mr Lal said that in the areas of critical technologies “one wants to leapfrog into the next generation.” This would be “not only the platform systems but as well as the design and development of various aspects of the ecosystem so that could include the maintenance and so forth,” he said.
