Taiwan Government, Telecom Sector Skill Council To Provide Skill Development In Telecom Sector

The industry body Telecom Sector Skill Council (TSSC) has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Taiwan in order to implement skill development in the telecom sector. The training targets to address the corporate job vacancies and recruit human resources in India and other nations.

As per the terms of MoU, TSSC will undertake the responsibility to train the candidates and Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) will provide the placement opportunities for the trained candidates.

Elaborating on the partnership Lt. Gen SP Kochhar (Retd), CEO, TSSC said, “Knowledge sharing and skill up-gradation with employability is one of our key focus areas. Our partnership with Taiwan shall enable us to design new vocational training and skill building programs which have a direct bearing on employment. This will help in bridging the employability gap and creating a specialized, skilled workforce.”

Lt. Gen SP Kochhar signed the MoU for TSSC. Mr. J.P. Wang, Deputy Director General of the Department of Investment Services, Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), Taiwan signed it for the government.

“This will promote and intensify the relationship and the mutual understanding between people to people of the two countries. Besides other areas, the two organizations will promote the exchange of faculty, research and resource persons for skill training, guest lectures, joint research projects related to newer technologies in the telecom sector”, Kochhar added.

“India has amazing human resources, especially in the ICT services industry, which could meet the needs of Taiwan enterprises eager to upgrade and develop as well as explore overseas markets,” said Wang.

“We were on a mission to introduce Taiwan to Indian job seekers and work with Indian institutions to cultivate talent.”

TSSC will train 8.67 million people in five years under this program.
