I take this opportunity to congratulate Wheebox and their Team for coming up with India Skills Report. It will act as an important vehicle to bridge the skill gap and help implement the Skilling India initiative effectively. The Open and Distance Learning (ODL) institutions of India in collaboration with different industry sectors may play a vital role in achieving the skilling goal through NSQF framework.

I congratulate Wheebox and it's team to Measure World's Talent and Skill Potential.
It is rightly said that organizations always win when they have the best talented human resource.
You are discovering and reaching this young talent. With the economy growing up, we are confident of a lot more new jobs being created and hence to generate skilled minds is the need of the time and I am sure that Wheebox is trying to reach this goal. The India Skills Report is an important benchmark in this respect. The insights captured in this report would surely help in taking steps for matching the skilled demand from industry and the supply of talent pool.

Our Higher Education System needs to be reimagined. We need to develop students who develop their capacity to learn through introspection, reflection and source the child like curiosity within themselves to acquire the skills needed for the new world. Even as we learn how to deploy artificial intelligence, robotics and machine learning and embrace the power of big data and digital, we have to develop empathy, and mindfulness so that our students think holistically and work to make our world better. We need to free our higher education system of all controls and make this sector attractive for investments by the world's best universities. India will never become a developed country unless we completely reform higher education.

India Skills Report is a wonderful initiative by Wheebox in association with CII. It has been carrying out comprehensive analysis and reports over the past seven years in the field of Higher Education. The report highlights the standard of the employment skills which is very useful for the younger generation. The analysis of the Wheebox National Employability test gives the reader an understanding of the employability levels of students undergoing varying courses, state-wise openings and opportunities regarding Internships, skill level training. All in all, a wonderful report that I look forward to every year along with so many graduates.
