S Jaishankar stresses on growing demand for Indian skills and talent at global level

| @indiablooms | 19 May 2024, 08:13 pm

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Friday highlighted the growing demand for  Indian skills and talent at the global level.

“In the era of a knowledge economy, the role of Indian skills and talent is also being reassessed. The nature of technological advancement is itself creating greater demand. But there is also the reality of demographic shortages in developed countries. These trends are manifesting themselves right now in an interest across the world to conclude mobility agreements with India,” the EAM was quoted as saying by ANI while speaking at the CII Annual Business Summit 2024 in New Delhi.

“On our part, we too would like to see that our talent is treated fairly and transparently. As a global workplace emerges – and believe me, it will grow faster than all of us anticipate. As a global workplace emerges – there are some immediate consequences. Expanding the scale and quality of skilling at home becomes an even more urgent imperative. This is very much in line with the Modi Government’s thinking. They are supported by the spread of the innovation and start-up culture as well. Businesses too need to do their fair share in the upgrading of our human resources,” he added.

Emphasising the goal of 'Viksit Bharat' (developed India) by 2047, as envisioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Tuesday urged business associations to partner with the government to ensure the revival of the country's manufacturing sector with the target of surpassing USD 30 trillion GDP.

"Not only 'Make in India,' we are urging businesses to procure from India," S Jaishankar said.

He said: "Businesses should take the 'Make in India' initiative as seriously as the government is taking it today."

Jaishankar made the remarks during an interactive session titled 'Viksit Bharat@2047,' hosted by the Indian Chamber of Commerce in Kolkata.
