During the meeting, Prof. Mattoo said that Jammu and Kashmir State has a huge potential of creating employment but the need of the hour is to channelize talent of youth in the State.

“It is for the first time in the history of the State that much focus is given to the betterment of youth and our incumbent Chief Minister is very keen for preparing policies, guidelines and schemes to ensure full literacy and competitive employability,” Prof. Mattoo said.

The aim of the meeting was to get recommendations from various stakeholders in order to help the government in formulating the vision document for interventions in skills, teaching, learning, research and innovation that will be drawn from global best practices and traditional norms.

Thread bare discussions were held and various suggestions and recommendations from industrialists and educations were taken into notice.

Prof. Mattoo stressed on industrialists to revive the old customs by creating and establishing the old art manufacturing units.

He assured the stakeholders that government will also start new courses for different traditional craft courses in colleges which will help the youth to flourish the art and craft industry.

The meeting was attended by president and members of KCCI, industrialists and educationalists.

In the meeting, the KCCI came with a proposal of adopting one school and one college and providing work skills in different industrial management sectors so that students will gain work experience.

After the meeting, Prof. Mattoo interacted with the students and faculty of various colleges and universities.
