Indo-Aussie deal to train 500 mn Indians

Australia’s industry skills council SkillsDMC has signed an agreement with India’s NSDC to impart training to 500 million people in key industry areas by 2022.

SkillsDMC has signed an MoU with Indian counterpart National Skills Development Corporation [NSDC] to support the establishment of the Indian Sector Skills Council for mining.

It will also provide for ongoing cooperation between the two sides, SkillsDMC said in an official statement.

The MoU was signed last week in presence of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Australian counterpart Julia Gillard during her visit to India.

India has set an ambitious target to provide skills training for up to 500 million people by 2022 to enhance productivity, employment opportunities and income, the statement said.
