Mukherjee said India has the largest number of youth and working forces and it may have this advantage for some time more. "...but this dividend will not pay as true dividend if we cannot convert the youth forces, working forces into productive employment."
Referring to the need for developing management and entrepreneurial skills in the country, Mukherjee said that the country needs its young people to start more businesses and create more employment opportunities instead of looking for jobs. "For that, we require a huge management cadre."
Mukherjee added that the world was changing fast and technological changes would bring disruptions.
