The Union Cabinet on Friday said that it has approved the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between India and Italy for training and education in the fields of labour and employment. “The MoU will facilitate expansion of the training and education activities to promote decent work in the world of work, through conducting joint training programmes on training methodologies and techniques; developing new training modules for different social partners; organizing customized training programmers in different themes on labour and employment and undertaking evaluation of training methodologies,” according to a Cabinet statement.
The major impact of the MoU would be up-gradation of technical capacities of both the institutions in responding to the challenges emanating from transformations in the world of work. It will enhance the technical capabilities of developing and organising international training programmes and the evolution of V.V.Giri National Labour Institute (VVGNLI) as a leading training institution in the Asia-Pacific region. The MoU will expand its outreach to wide range of social partners from the entire Asia Pacific Region.
