Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Union Minister for Education and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Dharmendra Pradhan, has said that India is continuously becoming skilled and efficient. The country has the largest youth skilled workforce in the world.
About 3.2 billion Indian youth are working across different countries of the world. Earlier, Indians were seen as workers in foreign countries, now the (Indian) community has transformed into a skilled workforce.
Pradhan said this while addressing the first plenary session of the last day of the 17th Pravasi Bharatiya Diwas Conference here on Tuesday. The session was titled “Role of Indian Diaspora for Enabling Global Mobility of Indian Work Force”.
Pradhan said that the world is watching Indians working at top positions in the world’s top IT companies. Indian products are known for their quality and cheaper price tags as compared to other countries.
India is at the forefront of working in tandem with the global value chain and has the largest number of Indians involved in the manufacture of consumer goods in the world. The biggest reason for this is efficiency, honesty and dedication of the diaspora towards their work.
