Launch of newsletter in 53rd annual meeting of IPA

Lamenting the lack of ecosystem required to meet the huge demand for skilled workers, Union Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudyon Tuesday said the government is taking steps to integrate skill development with education.

“The entire skill eco-system of the country has been killed. Make in India will not happen if there are no makers. The biggest challenge now is to put up an eco system.

“So far the prime focus in the country had been only on education, but formal education should be supplemented with at least 10 weeks of training which would make the youth employable,” said Rudy at an event here.
