New Delhi, Nov 11: Union Minister for Education and Skill Development Dharmendra Pradhan on Wednesday said the US is a natural ally to India forging new-age knowledge partnerships.
“Glad to see a lot of enthusiasm and optimism from universities in the US in leveraging the opportunities in India’s education landscape, and in partnering and working together,” Pradhan said while speaking during a virtual roundtable on ‘Advancing India-US Education Partnership’.
India and US share strong linkages in the education sector. There is an immense potential to further deepen collaborations and build knowledge partnerships, especally in interlinking industry, academia and policymakers of both the countries, the Union Minister said.
India’s National Education Policy 2020 has opened new pathways for India and the US to work together and facilitate mutually beneficial partnerships in research, two-way mobility of students and teachers, institute-to-institute collaborations, among others, he added.
