India, US meet to forge stronger linkages in skilling sector



The Union Minister of Education and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Dharmendra Pradhan held a meeting with United States Secretary of Commerce, Ms. Gina Raimondo, recently. Their discussion was focused on forging stronger linkages between India and the US in the skilling sector.

According to news sources, both the leaders agreed to strengthen institutional mechanisms for making the Indian skill ecosystem more vibrant as well as for building the workforce of the future.

Pradhan said that skills and competencies have become more important than degrees in today’s times. Further, he shared ways to create lifelong learning opportunities on a large scale and deepen our collaborations in 3S—Skilling, Start-ups and SMEs.

The dignitaries concluded that the size of India’s workforce on one hand, and the size of opportunities in critical and emerging technologies in the US on the other, can be aligned for mutual benefit to both our countries.
