Focus India 2016: Gain, Train and Sustain
India is one of the fastest growing markets in the world. But alongside this pace of development, various challenges have risen and will gain importance in the next years. With the world’s largest youth population, India will be challenged to provide sufficient employment for the huge number of people in the working age. In addition, the growing economy is in deep need of skilled and well-educated employees in order to be able to compete on a domestic and international level. Therefore, the project team of Focus India 2016 will focus on how Swiss, Indian and international companies gain and train young, skilled employees in order to ensure high quality and performance in a competitive and sustainable manner. Additionally, the promotion of entrepreneurial spirit and innovative thinking, which are crucial factors for a company’s successful development and growth, will be incorporated in the project.
