GUWAHATI: Highlighting the growing youth population of the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that India can supply manpower for running the industries across the globe.
“The world has money and industries but no youth to run them. After 2030, India can globally supply manpower for running the industries. That day is not far,” Modi said after laying the foundation stone of Indian Institute of Information Technology Guwahati.
Referring to the presence of talented and skilled Indians in the US, he said, “in Silicon Valley, CEOs of most companies are Indians and 60 to 70 per cent youth employed there are Indians”.
“Keeping in mind this need, we can take forward the Make in India policy to make India a manufacturing hub”, Modi said.
