Gadkari calls for low-cost, job oriented Skill Training to youth in maritime organisations

Maritime organisations should come forward to impart job-oriented skill training to youth as the sector is expected to generate over one crore job opportunities, the government said.

“Maritime organisations should work out skill development solutions that could provide low-cost, quality training to the youth and enable them to get jobs. This exercise for bridging the skill gap in the sector holds special significance as the maritime sector is expected to generate over a crore of employment directly and indirectly,” Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari said chairing an Advisory Committee meeting on Skill Development.

The committee was constituted in April to help organisations under the Shipping Ministry identify existing skill gaps and work out road maps for up-scaling their skill development initiatives, Ministry of Shipping said in a statement.
