National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) organized Seminar on Technical Intern Training Program
New Delhi, October 4, 2018: The Embassy of India, Tokyo, in association with Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) organized the India Seminar on the Technical Intern Training Program (TITP) in Nagoya on 28 September 2018. The event was organized with the support of JITCO, Aichi Prefecture Government and Nagoya Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and registered enthusiastic participation of over 180 relevant stakeholders of TITP. The Seminar, which was followed by a networking and business matching session was organized to provide a meaningful platform to the Indian and Japanese stakeholders to understand each other’s perspectives towards implementing TITP successfully.
Ambassador of India to Japan H.E. Mr. Sujan Chinoy delivered the inaugural remarks at the event and emphasised the importance of expanding bilateral cooperation in with regard to Skills development and training under the Special Strategic and Global Partnership between India and Japan. Ambassador also spoke on the strong links between two countries, the growing number of stakeholders and Japan’s role in India’s transformation as the largest investor in India as well as its presence in every major infrastructure project and flagship programme of Government of India. Welcoming the arrival of the first batch of TITP interns from India to Japan in July 2018 as a historic development, he also highlighted that India has the potential of being the largest provider of skilled human resources to the world. Noting that there are currently 17 technical interns from India in Japan, Ambassador also added that, with the structure and enabling framework firmly in place, India is at the cusp of exponentially increasing the number of TITP interns in Japan in the very near future. This would be a win-win situation since it would meet the needs of a declining and aging population in Japan and permit young Indians to benefit from Japan’s unmatched best practices.
Ms Juthika Patankar, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) underlining the strong and long-standing relationship between India and Japan, highlighted the growing level of convergence between
