NSDC International (NSDCI), as a 100% subsidiary of NDSC for steering national and international partnerships for overseas employment, has entered into an exclusive partnership with Western Australia WA-based multinational Perdaman Group to provide synergies in delivering premium services aligned to their core values. This agreement will lead to deeper cooperation between the two companies to foster the Australia and India mutual co-operation. Ved Mani Tiwari, CEO, NSDC & Managing Director NSDC International this week visited Perth to launch NSDC International with Perdaman in WA. The six (6) member delegation also met the Premier of Western Australia, Hon Mark McGowan MLA.
Under this collaboration, the two companies will address the high skill shortage currently impacting growth of Australia. The collaboration will also provide students from India/Australia with the opportunity to study in the reciprocal country through various channels. Going forward, it would also explore the scholarship opportunity and the possibility of a reduction of the fee for students coming from economically weaker backgrounds. The association will work in various industry sectors including manufacturing, hospitality, agriculture, renewable energy and electric vehicles.
Tiwari speaking on the partenrship said, “While India has a huge network of training institutions skilling millions of youths every year, Australia is facing an acute shortage of skilled workers. As a result, there is an urgent need to create an enabling and facilitating environment to benefit both countries. It is my firm belief that this partnership will not only make the process of international mobility by a smooth process by removing any bottlenecks and procedural challenges but also meet the aspirations of Indian youth to earn a livelihood in foreign countries.”
Chairman of Perdaman, Vikas Rambal while welcoming the initiative added, “This is a historic moment for both the countries to have organisation like NSDC International to establish with local partner Perdaman, for building the vision for the next generation of entrepreneurs and businesses.”
A close partnership between the two nations in the skill sector will bring up to $100 billion in bilateral trade in the next eight years. India has always placed Australia at the forefront of its international partnership with both governments recognising the significant potential for further collaboration across a myriad of areas such as trade, defense, education, and skill development. The recently signed interim free trade agreement between India and Australia has become the base for enhanced cooperation in investments and other strategic engagements under Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA).
