Skill East 2019 : CII summit on Future Skills, Entrepreneurship and Networking

6

The skill development challenge has magnified due to unprecedented issues of scalability i.e. reaching 500 million by 2022. This has coupled with multiple challenges in implementation. The country today requires a robust strategic framework which neatly ties the existing initiatives and brings the stakeholders together.

The dip in the youth population of key global economies vis-à-vis the growing numbers in India presents a huge opportunity, which can be capitalized if our talent pool is trained as per international standards. While the Indian skills ecosystem is still evolving, a lot of experience and unique studies are available internationally. Such learnings can enable India to adopt and adapt, thereby helping us create an internationally benchmarked talent pool. The Skill East Summit will propel this discussion to newer heights this year.

The Skill East 2019 Summit will be held in Bhubaneswar, Odisha on 22nd June 2019.
