Global Skills Summit inaugurated in New Delhi

Sep 04, 2014

The Indian government has urged the Industry to come forward and work with the government to reach out to the youth.

New Delhi: India’s Minister of State for Skill Development, Entrepreneurship, Youth Affairs and Sports, Sarbananda Sonowal, has said that his Ministry will welcome and embrace all meaningful skill development efforts with open arms, as skill development is a social transformation tool leading to wealth creation for individuals and through them, for the entire nation.

Inaugurating the Global Skills Summit in New Delhi, he called upon the industry to focus on inclusive skilling and reaching out to areas affected by left-wing extremism, the North-Eastern region and other hill states.  He urged the captains of the Industry to come forward and work with the government to reach out to the youth in the challenging areas of the country.

Quoting the Prime Minister’s speech delivered on 15th August, the minister said, “If we have to promote the development of our country, then our mission has to be ‘skill development’ and ‘skilled India’.

“Women constitute a sizable number in our country; however, their participation in the economic growth is limited. This must change by creating a conducive environment for their participation in the skills development activities. I am happy to note that this important issue is set to be discussed in the summit,” he said.

Sonowal called for enhanced industry participation for skilling people. “Industry has to lead by example, and there are many ways that you can contribute. Providing apprenticeship opportunities is one. This will help reduce the disconnect between industry and vocational training centres as well as school education and vocational training, which will ensure that the training is less relevant to industry’s needs,” he said.
