Emphasising on the importance of skill development, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said skilling, re-skilling and up-skilling of people needs to be expedited as there is going to be a huge demand for this due to fast-changing technology.

He said that skill development of the new generation is a national need and is the foundation of Aatmnirbhar Bharat.

Speaking on the occasion of the World Youth Skill Day, he also called for giving momentum to the Skill India Mission by capitalising on the gains of last six years.

“Learning should not stop with earning. Only a skilled person will grow in today’s world. This is applicable to both people and countries,” Modi said while exhorting the stakeholders to continuously skill, re-skill and up-skill.

“This needs to be expedited as there is going to be a huge demand for re-skilling due to fast changing technology,” he said.

He added that India providing smart and skilled manpower solutions to the world should be at the core of our strategy of skilling youth.

The Prime Minister said that more than 1.25 crore young persons have been trained under Pradhanmantri Kaushal Vikas Yojna.

He said that the skilled workforce has helped India in fighting an effective battle against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Further, talking about ‘Going Online As Leaders’ (GOAL), he said it is helping the tribal population with areas like art and culture.

“In the coming days, we need to make such campaigns more widespread and make ourselves and the country Aatmanirbhar through skilling”, he added.
