AUSTRALIA has used its skills training expertise to improve relations with India, agreeing to help the country work on its target of training 500 million people by 2022.
Prime Minister Julia Gillard oversaw the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Australia's industry skills council, SkillsDMC, and its Indian counterpart, which will see the emerging economic powerhouse learn how to boost its workforce's skills.
SkillsDMC will help its Indian counterpart with the creation of competency standards and processes for affiliation of training partners.
