Piyush Goyal says Skill Development will be core of all govt schemes
Union Minister Piyush Goyal has said, Skill Development will be the core of all government schemes. He pointed out that the government is pumping in more resources in the many industrial, textile and automobile parks, and each such Park should include a relevant Skill Development institution.
Addressing a Webinar yesterday, Mr Goyal said, the National Education Policy (NEP) being implemented across the country also lays stress on Skill Development. It envisages Dual Degree programmes, tie-ups with foreign Universities, student exchange programme and the promotion of Liberal Arts besides Academics.
In the Free Trade Agreement and Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement in which talks are being negotiated with many countries such as the UK, Australia or Canada, India is trying to include Education as a key sector of cooperation and incorporate tie-ups among Universities, keeping NEP as the basis and aiming to reduce fees.
