Ans- I mean, as a thought leader, I believe India is one of the most promising places with Saudi Arabia, and it's a place to be. I think there's a lot of opportunities in the fintech space, in the AI space, and I'm looking very much at companies where to invest and where to get involved, but it's very exciting. It's very exciting to be here, and there are a lot of smart people. It's a place to be.

Ans- Obviously are very smart and also adapting to a global market, and you will see a lot of great—I mean, we've seen a lot of great companies and startups that became unicorns in India, and you will see many more.

Q: How do you imagine the future? For example, in the next 10 years, will AI only be the key factor, and what other factors will come into this picture?

Ans- AI will be the main factor, many in my space, but environmental issues, air pollution, and climate change will also play a part in the economics of countries. But I think a country that doesn't develop its AI capabilities will find it hard to compete.
