NSDC Training Partner
On November 11, 2014, expressing concern at the high number of unemployed youth, the majority of whom live in the developing countries, United Nations decided to designate July 15 as World Youth Skills Day.
This year July 15 will be celebrated as World Youth Skills Day for the first time ever internationally. This day is of utmost importance to our country. India is a country of 1.25 billion people of which 54% are below the age group of 25 years. In India, we have just 2-3% skilled workforce. China, at a population of 1.4 billion people, has around 45 per cent of people who are skilled. UK has 68 to 70 per cent skilled people, Japan at about 80 per cent, Germany 74 per cent and Korea at 96 per cent.
In line with the vision of our Hon’ble Prime Minister of making our country a ‘Skilled Nation’ and also support “Make in India”, it is today, our endeavour to promote skill development for the youth of our country so as to increase their employability and garner growth for the nation. If ever, there was a time to reap India’s demographic dividend – it is now.
Looking at our current demographic dividend and the need in our country, the World Youth Skills Day has even more significance and relevance for us, as we are the youngest nation in the world with the maximum number of youth in the workable population.
It is imperative that the country awakens to the need and importance of skills now and all industries, ministries, states, corporates and individuals should join hands and work towards a common mission mode of making India the Skills Capital of the World.
It is about time that we channelize the energies of more than 50 crore youth in the right direction and become a skilled nation that will ensure both personal and the country's economic prosperity and social welfare.
We need to make a new beginning so let’s begin this July 15.
Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship will collaborate and cooperate with all ministries, states and departments to make this the day of India's Skill Revolution and encourage you all to be a part of our mission of a Skilled India!
