Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) is organizing the Global Skills Summit 2018 on 15th September 2018 in Delhi. The theme of the 11th edition of the Global Skills Summit (GSS) is Future Skills, Jobs and Demography. 

The world is seeing huge structural changes in the labour market which requires new skill-sets. India also, in this globalized era, is facing these challenges and is in the process of transformation. The quality and quantity of jobs will be significantly affected by the increased digitalization and automation that is happening everywhere. Traditional patterns of work and sources of livelihood are being replaced by new types of jobs and employment and changing the nature and conditions of work thereby altering skills requirements too.

The Summit will take a deeper look at future steps in skilling, changing demand in the job market, existing employment opportunities in India and gainful employment for migrant workers.

A very impressive panel will be covering these main sessions

  1. Future Skills and Jobs
  2. Reskilling and Upskilling for Gainful Migration (Domestic & International)
  3. Mainstreaming Apprenticeship
