Australia today assured its support to India in meeting the country's goal to upskill 500 million people by 2022, saying Australian training providers can help meet the skill development challenges. The assurance came during a meeting between Union Minister of State for Skill Development Rajeev Pratap Rudy and Australian Assistant Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham. "Today's meeting has helped build our bilateral skills relationship with India so we can seize emerging opportunities in both our countries," Birmingham said. He said that international education is Australia's "most successful services export, worth AUD 16.3 billion in 2013-14, and supporting around 130,000 jobs across Australia."
