EF 2016: Millions of new jobs being created in India, says Chanda Kochhar

DAVOS: The renewed focus on manufacturing sector, innovation and skill development will create millions of new jobs in India, top banker Chanda Kochhar said today as leaders from neighbouring countries Pakistan and Sri Lanka also vowed to take steps to boost employment generation.
...
Speaking here at a WEF Annual Meeting session on 'Transforming South Asia', Kochhar said, "India has been so far growing on services sector growth but the country is now focussing on manufacturing also which will create millions of new jobs."
...
With Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Sri Lanka Prime Minister Ranil Wickremsinghe on the panel, Kochhar said that in terms of creating jobs, India is also focussing on innovation and skill development.

Starting with the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Tata Trusts will be launching a series of initiatives in India on exchange of big ideas.
...
India will emerge one of the important players in meeting these goals. I believe solutions cannot be just adapted from other countries. We have to understand the problems in India and how it is different from other countries.
...
As the first stage, we are engaging with some of the best universities in the US on equal basis with India. If India starts to engage with major universities like MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), UCLA, Caltech, it could lead to research projects and addressing things jointly. Tomorrow, we could do it in areas of life sciences or material sciences or aerospace. We are hoping there can be an exchange.
People in similar levels in India and the US get together and form some dialogue.
...
The options that we are trying to energise India on its own will be seeking new sources of energy that do not deplete resources and that we can put some clever minds together and provide solutions for India that may be different from the US. There is a talk of reducing costs of solar panels by printing on paper. The issue is, should we not engage? India can have the benefit of solutions. The fact is, India needs to look at renewable energy rather than depletion of resources that it has today. That's the common area from where we start.
How different should the Indian solutions be from the ones in the US?
Ratan Tata: By way of example, if you take drinking water, you might have one type of solution in the US that meets various requirements and might have costs because it is needed to be efficient and cost effective on a huge scale but which you could not do in India.
...
Here you can have less sophisticated solution, which is safe and provides safe drinking water, but maybe at a lower volume, and if you took a US model and drafted into India, it may not be suitable. We need to solve Indian problems in an Indian way for India with the benefit of interacting with faculty members who have the knowledge and the experience of working on such problems.

The same can be said for the western states of Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra, Father Frederick D'souza, executive director of Caritas India, told ucanews.com
...
Over the past 15 years there has been a marked decrease in the number of malaria cases in India. According to a 2015 report by the World Health Organization, India has had a 50-75 percent decrease in malaria cases from 2000-2015.
Government data says that there were 273 malaria deaths in 2015 as compared to 562 in 2014.
Father D'souza said that Caritas has been working with the government in India's northeastern states since 2010 and they have seen incidents of malaria drop.
