Australia, India sign MoU on agriculture cooperation

New Delhi, May 23 (IANS) Australia and India Thursday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop and strengthen cooperation in skills training in the agriculture sector, said a statement.

“This partnership aims to achieve quality industry-led skills training standards in the agriculture sector. With India projected to add 12 to 15 million workers to its labour force every year over the coming decades, employability and productivity gains will be inextricably linked to quality standards,” Australian High Commissioner Patrick Suckling said in the statement.

He said the MoU results from the joint commitment of the prime ministers of the two countries in October 2012 to build bilateral partnerships between skills councils in key industry areas, including telecommunications, retail, mining, media/entertainment and agriculture.
