In her speech, the Vice President talked about innovation and technology that have aided businesses. However, she emphasized that such tools and ideas must be used to help people who are in need. “This, I believe, is how we can bridge today’s challenges and tomorrow’s solutions.

No matter how excellent our industries are performing, if we fail to make this growth inclusive, we will fail.”
