Australia India Business Council (AIBC) has activated a National Education and Training Chapter to facilitate and support the needs and expectations of all stakeholders in the education eco-system across our two countries, Australia and India.
The sub-committee is currently engaged in Round table brainstorming involving senior and experienced stakeholders from the education ecosystem.
The first round table was held in Sydney Central on Friday 27 July 2018.
Around 35 senior thought leaders participated from diverse stakeholder groups like Universities, RTOs, Institutes, Corporates, Industries, Governments, Practitioners, Consultants and Students.
The Consulate General of India gave some definitive direction from the Indian Govt perspective and National Vice Chair Jim Varghese provided The Indian Economic Strategy to 2035 perspective.
The consultations will align with Australian Government's strategic perspective and were benchmarked by 35 plus strong though leaders' inputs who brought in their best expertise and experience at the first brain storming event.
The outcome of the process is articulation of the needs, expectations, challenges and future steps that will help the education stakeholders in the bilateral space.
In the next couple of months, the AIBC Education Chapter in collaboration with the various thought leaders and stakeholders will finalize the priority action agenda and work out a solution pathway.
The plan is to also take a delegation to meet the key government officials who are responsible for education policy formulation & implementation.
AIBC will also Partner with corporates & industry that needs skilled and educated workers and engage with education practitioners and students to find the best collaborative way to add valuable contribution for bilateral trade, investments and engagements in the education sector of both the countries.
The National Chair of the education chapter is Dr Partha Mukherjee who has recently taken over from Jim Varghese, National Vice Chair, AIBC.
AIBC is keen to get more expressions of interest from stakeholders of the education sector to join in the initiative.
