0 2 mins 2 mths

India will look up to the G20 nations to develop an international skills portal to address issues related to global skills gap while deliberating on the gig and platform economy and sustainable financing of social security when it convenes the first meeting of the Employment Working Group (EWG) from February 2-4 in Jodhpur, said officials.

The labour and employment ministry, the nodal ministry for chairing EWG meeting, will hold four rounds of such discussions over the next few months before a ministerial level meeting in Indore on July 21.

Efforts will be made towards building a consensus among the G20 countries on developing a framework for assessing the skill gaps and harmonisation of skills qualification across these countries to enable faster and easier labour mobility and at a reduced cost.

The labour ministry said it expects the deliberations to include an international skill gap mapping portal for assessment of skill demand.
