Linking skill development to his government’s “war against poverty”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Wednesday that India has the potential to emerge as the “human resource capital” of the world as China has become a global “manufacturing factory”.
“We have to map the requirements of the entire world and then provide human resource to them,” Modi said as he launched the National Mission for Skill Development to “provide the overall institutional framework to rapidly implement and scale up skill development efforts across India”.
The mission has set a target to skill 24 lakh workers this year and 40.2 crore workers by 2022.
