Over 200 delegates to attend High intensity event focusing on international education industry Comprehensive insights from policy makers In the spirit of MOU signed with FICCI, INZBC presents fourth edition of its annual summit.

The National Skill Mission is chaired by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi himself.

International education is New Zealand’s fifth largest export industry, with a goal to achieve $5 billion economic value by 2025.

India is a country today with 65% of its youth in the working age group. If ever there is a way to reap this demographic advantage, it has to be through skill development of the youth so that they add not only to their personal growth, but to the country’s economic growth as well.

India is New Zealand’s second-largest and fastest-growing source country for international students. Post-study opportunities continue to be in high demand as Indian students seek pathways for employment and migration. New Zealand’s Private Training Establishments (PTEs) attract the largest number of Indian students, driven largely by migration pathways. Skill India Skill India is an initiative of the Government of India which has been launched to empower the youth of India with skill sets which make them more employable and more productive in their work environment.

The new programme aims at providing training and skill development to 500 million youth of India by 2020, covering each and every village. Technology Technology is not only fueling major business transformation across industries, it’s also changing how technology enterprises sell their products and services, operate, and plan for future growth. Technology is the backbone of the digital economy. The rate of change and the level of disruption driven by modern technology are exponential.
