We are happy to advise that supported and partnered by the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region and the National Skill Development Corporation, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is organizing the “North East Skills Conclave - 2012 – Forging Partnerships for Skills Delivery”.
The landscape of the North Eastern region is going through a transformation heralding new investments in existing as well as in new and emerging sectors. On the one hand, significant development expenditures and investments are flowing into the Region. On the other hand, in all the eight States in the Region one notices urgency for growth from within. In this context, skill development is now becoming the cornerstone of development strategies and planning for the North Eastern Region to ensure that the aspiring local population is able to reap the benefits of growth.
Given this backdrop, the Conclave is designed to create a comprehensive platform for all stakeholders to discuss and identify strategies for catalyzing market linked skills development through partnerships of various forms. A Concept note is enclosed for your reference.
The Conclave will be participated by senior decision makers from the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), other relevant Central Ministries, all State Governments of the North Eastern Region, development institutions and private players.
