India has signed a memorandum of cooperation (MoC) with Japan to send youngsters there as technical interns for on-the-job training for a period of three to five years.
The MoC on Technical Intern Training Programme (TITP) was signed by Skill Development Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and Japanese Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare with Katsunobu Kato at Tokyo today.
India is the third country with which Japan has signed the MoC.
As per the Japan’s official data for 2016-end, approximately 2.3 Lakh technical intern trainees from multiple countries are on training in the island nation.
During the visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to India last month, the two prime ministers expressed confidence that synergy between Japan’s advanced technology and India’s rich human resources can transform both the countries into new centres of production.
