The Minister for Labour and Rehabilitation, Shri Shibu Baby John, Government of Kerala, recently returned from Dubai after successfully hosting a triumphant first edition of the ‘Nypunyam Forum’ for the Nypunyam Summit, The Summit, a pioneering initiative to enhance trade and business, aimed to provide for industrial partnerships and tie-ups in the state of Kerala and took place on 9th December, 2013 at The Shangri La Hotel, Dubai. This initiative will create a considerable difference in the quality of labour and also enable India to provide a work force that meets world-class standards in terms of skills and expertise. Notable attendees at the event were top corporate honchos from Eram Engineering Company, Gems Education (Varkey Group) and Pravasi Bandhu Welfare Trust to name a few.

The core objective of the Nypunyam initiative in Dubai was to bridge the gap between industry requirements and skilled workforce, with a focus to identify industry partners and forge alliances with the public and private sectors for providing qualitative and quantitative improvement of training in various sectors like Automobile, Construction, Healthcare, Hospitality, Security, Manufacturing, Retail, etc. The aim is also to train people with Dubai industry norms and standards in mind and further create a talent pool of industry-ready people.

Shri Shibu Baby John said, “The Directorate of Employment and Training under the Department of Labour is imparting skills in various vocational trades to meet the skilled manpower requirements of the Industry. To cater to the increasing demand of skilled manpower in the fast changing world and to create an adept and tailor made workforce, the Department of Industrial Training plays a crucial role with its advanced infrastructural facilities. Accepting this as a primary concept, the Department is organizing an International Skill Summit named ‘Nypunyam Summit’ in January 2014.”

"The industry, world over is facing shortage of trained manpower whereas in Kerala we have one of the richest, educated, adaptable and flexible human resources. Through Nypunyam, industry and the youth, both would be able to meet their respective requirements. “Said Mr. Prasanth N. IAS, Director of Employment and Training.

Dr. Nivedita P Haran, Additional Chief Secretary, Personnel & Administrative Reforms Department (Administrative Reforms & Training), Labour and Rehabilitation Department, Power Department, Director, IMG stated, ‘Providing skill-based education to its students is one of the biggest challenges that India, indeed all countries of the world, face today.  Training in trades based on market-demand, using modern pedagogical techniques is the need of the hour and Kerala has taken up this task with vigour and dedication.  Equally important is providing the last mile connectivity to bring such employable trainees and employers on a common platform.  Nypunyam is a sincere and a practical effort in this direction.'

The Nypunyam Forum in Dubai was the first stage of the final ‘Nypunyam Summit’ that will take place on January 20-21at Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India.
