Gandhinagar, Sep 24: Australian Trade Commissioner Tom Calder will present a report to Gujarat’s Minister for Labour and Employment, Saurabh Patel, on skills training on Wednesday.
The report ‘Unlocking India’s Potential’ would describe how Australia can play a vital role in helping India boost vocational training.
The report will be presented at the National Conference on Skill Development at Gandhinagar tomorrow at 11 a.m.
The report highlights Australia to be in a prime position to offer high quality skills development training in India, particularly in states like Gujarat.
“India wants to train hundreds of millions of people to reach its economic goals, and Australian providers can help tackle this challenge,” Calder said.
He gave an example of Kangan Tafe from Melbourne who has just signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop an Automotive Centre of Excellence in Gujarat.
“This is a great example of how Australian technical expertise can provide an invaluable service to the people of India,” he said.
“This centre will create new employment opportunities for those who attend. It is a great model of collaboration between India and Australia,” he added. (ANI)
