‘Indians believe in global collaboration, inventions’

Chennai: A latest survey of more than 22,000 people across 24 countries tracked sentiment in a world irrevocably changed by Covid-19.

Conducted in partnership with YouGov, the survey by Expo 2020 Dubai followed a similar study carried out in 2019, before the pandemic.

According to the findings, 88 per cent of Indian respondents are of the opinion that nations should work closer together to solve global challenges such as a pandemic.

While 56 per cent of Indians said that greater alliances between communities have a part to play in building a better future, 57 per cent also expressed that they believe technological inventions will facilitate unity.

The survey outcome shows that Indians have a positive outlook on technology and sustainability and reveals that nearly 75 per cent of young Indians are hopeful about their future and exploring opportunities — versus the global youth response of around 50 per cent.
