Skill training is the immediate need for young people of Mizoram

Executive Member of National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), Dr Sapna Poti and Governor Lt General Nirbhay Sharma here at the Raj Bhavan discussed important matters concerning skill development for the Mizo youth.

The various initiatives under the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship(MSDE) are suitable for the Mizo youth, the Governor told Dr Sapna Poti and added that the upcoming generation needs the help of NSDC.

“Given that the railway line would soon touch Mizoram, strengthening of international border trade with Mizoram is likely to receive a boost. The Mizo youth are, as of now, not ready for this abrupt developmental change to happen. Therefore, skill training is their immediate need,” the Governor said. He therefore called on Dr Poti to help take immediate positive steps, saying that more than other States, Mizoram is in dire need of the various initiatives under the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.

Dr Poti on her part told the Governor that the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship favors the NE region when she briefed the latter on the various initiatives of the Ministry.
