He was inaugurating the World Youth Skill Day observance at Government High School at Edappally under the Additional Skill Acquisition Programme (ASAP).
“Even small technological breakthroughs are leading to major changes globally. Thus, talent enhancement too must be given attention, to keep pace with developments taking place in the science and technology sphere,” Mr. Thomas observed.
Speaking on the occasion, ASAP district programme manager Neetu Satyan said community skill parks would be launched shortly to impart international-level training. The parks will be launched at Kinfra Park, Kalamassery, and Perumbavoor.
