Skill India is a major policy initiative of the Government of India, which seeks to provide vocational training to 400 million Indian workers by 2022. Australia can assist in improving skill provision in India, but it requires basic research on existing training regimes and a clear narrative about why it wishes to be involved. Australia should align plans for skill development with a long-term economic strategy for India.
