The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, collaborated to organise the closing ceremony.
Dharmendra Pradhan praised Singapore’s skilling concept and asserted that India should learn from it by making sure that everyone has access to training for respectable employment and establishing a confident society.
He said that India needs to work on industry relevant course curriculum and another area of priority for the country on the lines of what Singapore has already attained.
“There is immense scope for India and Singapore to work together to achieve mutual priority, particularly towards preparing a future ready workforce for the entire globe. Skill development and knowledge collaboration are an important element for bilateral strategic partnership,” he said.
