According to a Money Control report, Salesforce chief data evangelist Vala Afshar said that indirectly the company will create 13 lakh jobs in India while speaking at the Raise summit.  

"I think the impact of my company in India alone is going to create billions of dollars in incremental GDP. We are going to create 1.3 million new jobs indirectly with our customer and partner ecosystem but directly we are going to add 548,000 new jobs in the near future," Afshar said.

"In the next couple of years we are committed to training 250,000 students. Education is key to reducing digital divide," Afshar added at the summit. With recent updates, Salesforce is estimated to have market capitalisation of around USD 240 billion. 

Further in the summit Afshar stated that India will soon be the world's most advanced connected society. As data is going to be vital to the artificial intelligence economy, India is poised to be a super power when it comes to AI. Meanwhile, India has 60 crore unique users connected to the internet.

The country also has an opportunity in the next 5 to 6 years in the world to be USD 6 trillion consumer spend power in India. 

"Every 3 seconds a new person in India connects to the internet for the first time. What that means 600 million today will be over a billion unique users connected to the internet in perhaps just in the next five years. This also means that India is poised to be the second largest GDP in the world only behind China and ahead of the US," Afshar noted. 

Talking about the summit, there were more than 79,000 stakeholders from academia; the research industry and government representatives from 147 countries who participated in the summit that was held during October 5-9.
