Kochi: The next three to four decades will witness drastic changes in all sectors of social life resulting in endless opportunities before the society, said Kris Gopalakrishnan, co-founder of Infosys.

The innovative technologies coming up in the industries are opening fresh opportunities and economic progress, he said addressing a session on Change and Economic Development at the Tamil Brahmin's Global Meet here on Saturday.


The transport and health sectors have witnessed the maximum changes, he said. India has to move ahead, he said. It is yet to utilise its resources fully.

The country has failed in realising a sustainable development model. The inefficiency of the public transport system is a glaring example.

Despite such failure, the country still can take leadership positions by developing models that could be emulated by others, he added.

Sundar Kalyanam, chairman Petrofac India, said development is measured based on wealth alone, said.

The young generation will have to attain economic progress by economic empowerment.

He also called for raising the collective voice for the progress of the Brahmin community.

N.S. Venkatesh, chief executive of the Association of Mutual Funds in India, Kerala Brahmin Sabha president Karimpuzha Raman and many others addressed the sessions.

The three-day event will conclude on Sunday. Venu Rajamony, Indian ambassador to the Netherlands, will address the valedictory function.
