Arun Jaitley, the Finance Minister of India, wants the country to progress by focussing more on skill development so that more jobs can be generated for the youth.
The Minister was leading a high-powered business delegation from Confederation of Indian Industry. He visited the SP Jain School of Global Management in Sydney, where he spoke about speeding up India’s development in terms of employment.
With the increase of education in the urban areas of India, there has been an increase in FDI, and rise in urban demand. However, this development should not be concentrated in urban areas only. There has to be an increase in private sector participation and rise in rural demand. For this, it is imperative to make the rural people more skillful so that they are able to make a living. If this can be achieved, then only India can look towards more prosperity.
