  1. Its urgent we need to play catch up , its very impressive as things are moving in positive direction.
    It’s very expensive to open electronic Institutes, my suggestion is to open small electronic labs with more hands on experience. This will produce phone repair techs, computer techs etc.
    The techs will learn how to use oscilloscope, volt meter and much more.
    Teaching solar panels, battery storage technology just to mention a few.
    These labs will attract some creative minded entrepreneurs , young minds supporting inventive minds.
    The electronic service industry is multibillion dollar industry, specially in auto servicing.
    I hope some one will take actionable steps to make this a reality . As 5 years from now auto industry will become electric.
    You can contact me for future actions.
    I am a visionist, with out vision for future, there is no plan.
    Let’s make a practical solution team. A small invention can change the world specially in medical industries.
    I wish you the best.
