This year July 15 will be celebrated as World Youth Skills Day for the first time ever internationally. This day is of utmost importance to our country. India is a country of 1.25 billion people of which 54% are below the age group of 25 years. In India, we have just 2-3% skilled workforce. China, at a population of 1.4 billion people, has around 45 per cent of people who are skilled. UK has 68 to 70 per cent skilled people, Japan at about 80 per cent, Germany 74 per cent and Korea at 96 per cent.

In line with the vision of our Hon’ble Prime Minister of making our country a ‘Skilled Nation’ and also support “Make in India”, it is today, our endeavour to promote skill development for the youth of our country so as to increase their employability and garner growth for the nation. If ever, there was a time to reap India’s demographic dividend – it is now.

Looking at our current demographic dividend and the need in our country, the World Youth Skills Day has even more significance and relevance for us, as we are the youngest nation in the world with the maximum number of youth in the workable population.

It is imperative that the country awakens to the need and importance of skills now and all industries, ministries, states, corporates and individuals should join hands and work towards a common mission mode of making India the Skills Capital of the World.
