PM at CeBIT: UK and Germany can lead technological revolution

What can I say – music, violins, a robot thespian – this is how I spend all my Sunday nights.

It is a huge pleasure to be here and can I say to the Chancellor what an honour it is for the UK to co-host this event.

Germany is a country with a proud history in technology from the Fraunhofer institutes in your towns to the tech start-ups in Berlin and of course this world-leading conference we are opening here today.

As that advertisement we all grew up hearing said: “Vorsprung Durch Technik” and it is that spirit we are celebrating tonight.

Progress through technology. And what remarkable progress we see.

Today we can put in our pockets a computer more powerful than any computer in the world 20 years ago.

Just a decade ago – Skype was a typo, a tweet was something you heard from a bird, a cloud was something you saw in the sky – not somewhere you stored your data.

Companies that are starting in people’s garages and bedrooms one year are going stratospheric the next.

This is a world on fast forward a world of permanent technological revolution and in this world, countries like the UK and Germany will only succeed if we have a relentless drive for new ideas and innovations.

That’s why I am here today. And I have come here with a mission and a message.
