This would engage around 40+ delegates from Australia including CEOs, TAFE Directors, ACPET members, officials from Australian High Commission, Department of Education and Training and representatives from CII, NSDC and Telecom Skill Council.
Lt. Gen SP Kochhar said “Telecom sector has the potential to generate 5.6 million job opportunities (as per KPMG report). Combined with our government’s focus on training efforts such as Skill India, Digital India and Make in India, it puts us at a historic point to define the next decade for India and the developing world. To leverage this opportunity and tackle its accompanying challenges, emerging markets like ours will need to invest substantially in capacitating their human capital and infrastructure at global standards. Collaboration with Australia is a critical step towards achieving this goal.”
