Global Skills Summit 2016 Gujarat


The Global Skills Summit 2016 is scheduled to be held on 17th December 2016 in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. On this occasion, we caught up with event organizer, Sanjay Vanani, Founder, Navjivan Center for Development to tell us more about the conference, its theme and what participants can expect from it. 

inverted-commaAs per the published data only 4% of the country’s population is skilled compared to 68% in the UK, 75% in Germany, 58% in the USA, 80% in Japan and enviable 96% in South Korea. Looking this data we have huge opportunity to skill our people. I would say that if we want to encash the demographic dividend, we have to provide skills to our all citizens. We wish to contribute to achieve the agenda for India becoming the “Skill Capital of World”.
