"It is imperative that the government and the private sector works hand in hand to ensure a successful skilled ecosystem," Pradhan said.

He was speaking at the inauguration of an event, marking the 3rd anniversary celebration of Skill India Mission, on the occasion of World Youth Skills Day, observed globally on July 15.

"We are also partnering with countries like Japan, Germany and UAE to ensure global opportunities of training and employment for India's youth," the Union Skill Development minister said.

K P Krishnan, Secretary, Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, said, "Under the Skill India Mission, we are able to annually skill, reskill, or upskill close to 1 crore youth in the country just under central government programs."

"It is also being positively supplemented by state and industry efforts towards equipping the youth with the market relevant skill sets." Krishnan added.
