Japanese government to provide training to 30,000 Indian engineers
Toyota India collaborates with the Government of Japan under a 'Manufacturing Skill Transfer Promotion Programme' to reinforce the manufacturing base of India and contribute to "Make in India" and "Skill India" missions. Envisioned to reach the notched-up heights, India is leisurely ascending towards greater growth by generating as well as bringing a plethora of opportunities from outside the country. The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India (MSDE) and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Government of Japan (METI) has inked Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) over a "Manufacturing Skill Transfer Promotion Programme" on November 11.
As a part of this MoC, the Japanese government under a program of Toyota Kirloskar Motor will train 30,000 Indian Engineers for the next 10 years with Japanese style manufacturing skills and practices which will strengthen the manufacturing core of India. The first three such institutes will start next summer in Gujarat, Karnataka and Rajasthan.
According to reports, the company said that Toyota’s skill development initiatives are aimed to contribute to the ‘Skill India’ mission by bridging the gap between the country’s rapidly-growing industrial sector and availability of highly skilled workforce.
The selected engineers under this training program will be exposed to the Toyota way of manufacturing called the 'Monozukuri' and familiarized with the global concepts of 'Lean Manufacturing' or Kaizen Genchi Genbutsu.
