A new tourism training centre has been inaugurated at the Mohanlal Sukhadia University, a public varsity in Udaipur (Rajasthan) by Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. The Premier is on a five-day working visit to India. He had earlier met Rajasthan’s Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Thursday.
The centre will commence courses in late 2016, and will offer tourism and hospitality training in areas such as retail services and culinary arts.
Singapore’s Acting Education Minister Ong Ye Kung unveiled a plaque with Ms Raje to mark the centre’s launch. The launch comes more than a year after both parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding in Jaipur.
The Acting Education Minister, who co-chairs the Future Jobs and Skills sub-committee of the Committee on the Future Economy, added that Singapore brings to India its knowledge in “training people and upgrading vocational expertise”.
Singapore’s ITE Education Services (ITEES) will help develop the curriculum and training programme, while the Rajasthani government will be responsible for the facilities, equipment and recruitment of trainers.
